“Tau Pathology and Neurodegeneration in Autosomal Sominant Alzheimer’s Disease”

Yakeel T. Quiroz, PhD

Associate Professor Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology Massachusetts General Hospital Harvard Medical School

Dr. Quiroz will present findings from the Colombia-Boston (COLBOS) biomarker study, which follows members of families from Colombia who carry genetic mutations for early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Neuroimaging and other biomarker data will be discussed as they relate to subsequent cognitive decline in those at increased risk for dementia. She will also present some of her lab’s ongoing work characterizing individuals from these families who remained cognitively unimpaired until advanced age.
