Dr. Delic graduated from the University of South Florida in 2015 with a Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology.
His doctoral work was aimed at identifying strategies to prevent age and neurodegenerative disease
associated mitochondrial dysfunction. He completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Alabama
at Birmingham (UAB), in the Neurology department, Center for Neurodegeneration, and Experimental
Therapeutics (CNET), now home to a Udall Center of Excellence in Parkinson disease. His research focus
while at UAB was to determine the effectiveness of LRRK2 targeted therapeutics in preclinical rat models
of PD. At the end of 2018 Dr. Delic joined the New Jersey VA Health Care System, as an associate director
of the Lab of Molecular Biology (LMB), to study the relationship between TBI and PD both of which are
overrepresented in the U.S. Veteran population. He formally joined Rutgers NJMS, department of
Pharmacology, Physiology and Neuroscience in March 2021.
