Brain Aging & Alzheimer's Disease: New Insights from New Technologies

The Center for Vital Longevity, in partnership with the Texas Instruments Alumni Association, presents UC Berkeley's Dr. William Jagust. The event is a public lecture and free to the public.

Dr. William Jagust joined the faculty of the University of California, Davis in 1986, where he established the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center and served as Chair of the Department of Neurology from 1998 - 2004.  He moved to the University of California, Berkeley in 2004 where he is a Professor of Public Health and Neuroscience, and a Faculty Senior Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Dr. Jagust's career has been focused on understanding the aging brain, and particularly the borderland between normal cognitive aging and Alzheimer's disease.  His laboratory has pioneered in the use of multimodal imaging to understand brain aging and Alzheimer's disease, employing positron emission tomography (PET) to measure beta-amyloid and tau proteins in the brain, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate how these protein aggregates affect neural function and brain structure.  He served on editorial boards of major journals, advisory boards to the National Institute on Aging, and he currently heads the PET core of the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, a 60-center multisite study of imaging in AD.  He is a recipient of the 2013 Potamkin Prize for Research in Pick's, Alzheimer's and Related Diseases.
