Research Description:

The research in my lab focuses on understanding the temporal course of neurodegenerative diseases using novel longitudinal modeling methods, and the characterization and validation of novel imaging and fluid biomarkers of disease. This research includes basic science research such as understanding antemortem-postmortem correlates between biomarkers collected during life and postmortem confirmed pathological entities, as well as applied clinical research such as the development and application of novel longitudinal biomarker modeling methods to multi-cohort data to characterize Alzheimer’s disease risk throughout the lifespan, and centralized processing of multi-cohort neuroimaging data.

In addition to the lab’s own research, we support neuroimaging processing and analyses for the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Research Program including the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Research Center, as well as the UW Center for Health Disparities Research
