Tackling the complex pathogenesis of non-Alzheimer dementias and motor neurodegenerative disorders
Alzheimer's disease & other dementias
neurodegenerative disorders | frontotemporal dementia | movement disorders | neuropathology | biomarkers
I research dementia and motor syndromes as there are no mechanistic treatments for these disorders, and for many there are no treatments at all. Without being able to identify the same diseases and differentiate them from other diseases, no treatments will be successful. To develop more reliably detection methods for these diseases, I perform longitudinally studies where the participants agree to donate serial biological samples and their brain tissue at death.
