Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the area of neurodegenerative disease, particularly Alzheimer's disease and related disorders such as the frontotemporal lobar degenerations and motor neuron disease. My focus is on the role of genetics and morphologic abnormalities such as parenchymal vacuolation and ubiquitin, TDP-43, and tau positive inclusions in frontotemporal lobar degenerations and related disorders such as primary progressive aphasia, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, and motor neuron disease-associated dementia. In addition, I continue my role of Neuropathology Core leader in the NIH-supported Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer Disease Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Within the framework of the Core-related Laboratory for Cognitive and Molecular Morphometry, the Neuropathology Core is actively involved in assisting basic science researchers investigate the applicability of their findings to human tissue.
