Dr. Peter Nelson explains Primary Age-Related Tauopathy and his role in defining this new disease.
My name is Peter Nelson; I received my medical degree, and a doctorate in philosophy in Neurobiology, from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. I then completed anatomic pathology residency, neuropathology clinical fellowship, and post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, Philadelphia. I am board certified by the American Board of Pathology in Anatomic Pathology and Neuropathology. I am leader of the Neuropathology Core of the University of Kentucky Alzheimer's Disease Center.
My areas of interest include neuropathology, microRNAs (miRNAs), Alzheimer's disease, hippocampal sclerosis of aging (HS-Aging), dementia with Lewy bodies, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
