Belinda's Story

Dr Belinda Kaskow joined our medical research team in 2021. Belinda’s story, and her journey to join us, is remarkable. And incredibly moving. Her passion to see diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and cancer eradicated from the human race forever has a very personal motive.

Belinda completed her Ph.D. at the University of Western Australia and then moved to Boston, USA to conduct postdoctoral research into the causes and treatments for neurological diseases.

She worked at some of the world’s most renowned medical organisations, including the Ann Romney Centre for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Broad institute of MIT and Harvard.

It was while overseas working with respected neurologists Dr. Philip De Jager and Dr. Howard Weiner and immunology researcher Dr. Clare Baecher-Allan, that her immediate family experienced the tragedy of cancer. Not once, but four times.

You can imagine how this experience spurred on Belinda’s lifelong desire to bring all her international expertise back to the West Australian scientific community. This goal was finally made possible in 2021 when the Eyewall Foundation sponsored her appointment as a Post-Doctoral Scientist at the Perron Institute.

Belinda is now living in Perth with her husband and two young children and is continuing her postdoctoral research at the Perron Institute. The unknowns faced by her family members drive Belinda’s ongoing passion to solve the riddle of incurable neurological disease in the hopes to help individuals and their loved ones everywhere.
