Gérard N Bischof, PhD

Dr. Bischof’s primary research focus is
understanding the molecular, neuronal and functional underpinnings of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). He utilizes various imaging modalities, such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) or Magnet Resonance Imaging (MRI) to investigate the main culprits of neurodegeneration in AD and their behavioral consequences.
Additionally, his interest lies in understanding normal aging as there is much too be learned from differential aging processes as it may give rise to the differences that underlies successful and unsuccessful aging.
