Position title: Ph.D. Candidate
Tobey Betthauser, PhD
I am interested in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, memory, and behavior. More specifically, I would like to understand how environmental and molecular factors impact the development of Alzheimer’s disease, other types of dementia, and changes in behavior in a positive or negative manner. The goal is to produce data that can be used as tools towards the development of non-invasive therapies.
