Weill Neurohub hosts a monthly seminar series that explores two complementary research perspectives on a single neurologic or psychiatric condition.
Seminars are held from Noon to 1pm (PST), on the first Friday of every month.
Friday, November 6th | Alzheimer’s Disease
Featuring Professors Bill Jagust (UC Berkeley) and Tom Grabowski (University of Washington)
Dr. Jagust’s lab uses positron emission tomography (PET), structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience to understand the anatomic, biochemical, and neurochemical bases of changes in behavior with age and dementia. He leads the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), a multicenter longitudinal study designed to develop clinical, imaging, genetic, and biochemical biomarkers for the early detection and tracking of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in order to improve the design of clinical trials of AD therapeutics.
Dr. Grabowski is the Director of the UW Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC). He oversees a multi-disciplinary effort to further a precision medicine approach to Alzheimer's disease. This work aims to better define key steps in the pathological process and thereby identify new therapeutic targets that will help people with different variants of this disease. In this talk, he will discuss the topographic heterogeneity of Alzheimer’s disease from a clinical perspective, and its under-recognized importance as an aspect of the phenotype of the disease.
