Alzheimer's Disease Seminar Series with Robert Vassar, PhD

Robert J Vassar, PhD
Scientific Director of Behavioral Neurology in the Department of Neurology
Davee Professor of Alzheimer Research
Professor of Neurology (Behavioral Neurology) and Cell and Developmental Biology

Dr. Vassar's lab research focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease. In particular, we investigate the beta-secretase enzyme BACE1, which initiates the production of the beta-amyloid peptide that plays a central early role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's. We use a combination of biochemical, cell culture and animal model approaches to investigate the role of BACE1 in health and disease.

Dr. Judy Pa is a new assistant professor at the Institute for Neuroimaging and Informatics in the Keck School of Medicine and the department of Neurology. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Alzheimer s disease at UC San Francisco and then served five years as a faculty member. Dr. Pa s research is focused on identifying individuals at risk for Alzheimer s disease, understanding how Alzheimer s pathology impacts brain function in the living brain, and developing ways to remediate cognitive and brain dysfunction. Judy's research is supported by two early career awards from the National Institutes of Health and the Alzheimer s Association. Judy is also dedicated to teaching and is looking forward to training students in USC's new Neuroimaging masters program and the USC Neuroscience Graduate Program.
