The Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center has invited Dr. Gil Rabinovici, Professor of Neurology, UCSF Memory & Aging Center, to present at Neurology Grand Rounds Wednesday, February 27, 2019 from 10:30-11:30am at Danto Auditorium in the Cardiovascular Center (CVC).
Dr. Rabinovici’s research investigates how structural, functional and molecular brain imaging techniques can be used to improve diagnostic accuracy in dementia and to study the biology of neurodegenerative diseases, with the goal of accelerating treatment development. He leads the MAC PET imaging program and is Associate Director of the UCSF Alzheimer’s Disease Center. Dr. Rabinovici is principal investigator of Imaging Dementia: Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (IDEAS), a U.S.-wide study to assess the clinical utility of amyloid PET in 18,500 patients with MCI/dementia of uncertain etiology. He is co-PI and PET Core Director of the multi-site Longitudinal Evaluation of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease Study (LEADS).
We hope you can join us for Dr. Rabinovici’s talk titled Heterogeneity in Alzheimer’s Disease: Insights from Amyloid and Tau PET.
