Symposium Presenters include:
Gregory A. Jicha, MD, Ph.D. Professor of Neurology and a Researcher at the NIH funded Sanders-Brown Center on Aging at the University of Kentucky, one of ten original centers funded by NIH.
Dr. Jicha’s research focuses on MCI and its subtypes, such as Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Vascular Dementia, FTD and others. His clinical investigations focus on the unique presentation and clinical course for each subtype of MCI and correlate this with final neuropathologic outcomes to further refine and develop a more accurate diagnosis of predementia.
Jeffrey Iliff, PhD is a presenter at the 2021 Symposium. His pioneering research on the “glymphatic system” shows how the brain’s waste products are cleared during sleep.
Dr. Iliff’s work explores glymphatic underpinnings of Alzheimer’s and similar conditions
