12:00 PM

Zoom - link will be provided upon registration.

Held as part of the MADRC Neuroimaging Seminar Series and featuring Dr. Patrick Pruitt.

Join us for the Neuroimaging Summer Series, showcasing the cutting-edge research of the Neuroimaging Faculty at the Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. This series aims to inspire both students and faculty to incorporate imaging techniques into their research while highlighting the pivotal contributions to neurodegeneration disease studies. Don't miss this opportunity to explore the forefront of neuroimaging research

Patrick J Pruitt, Ph.D.

Imaging Research Specialist – Neuropsychology
University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry

Dr. Pruitt received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Michigan in 2016.  He completed post-doctoral fellowships at the Institute of Gerontology at Wayne State University and the Department of Radiology at Oregon Health and Science University, as well as performing data analysis at the Alzheimer’s Clinical & Translational Research Unit in the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital.  Dr. Pruitt is interested in characterizing how to effectively use neuroimaging modalities as outcome measures of clinical trials of age-related cognitive decline, as well as applying principles of Philosophy of Science to studies using neuroimaging data to answer research questions.
