Dr Joseph Jebelli is a British neuroscientist and author. His first book, In Pursuit of Memory: The Fight Against Alzheimer’s, published in 2017 by John Murray Press in the UK and Little Brown in the US, received ecstatic reviews and was named Science Book of the Month by the Bookseller. It was longlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize and shortlisted for the Royal Society Science Prize. Rights have also sold in ten other languages. Joseph began to work on Alzheimer’s – specifically, using the body’s immune system to halt its progress – while studying for his PhD in Neurobiology at University College London. He continued neuroscience research at the University of Washington, United States, before moving back to London. In addition to numerous academic articles on Alzheimer’s and the brain, Joseph has written for the Guardian, the Telegraph, and the Wellcome Trust.
