Guest Speaker: Russell Swerdlow, MD
“Mitochondria and Mitochondrial Cascades in Alzheimer’s Disease​”

Professor of Neurology, Molecular and Integrative Physiology, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Director, University of Kansas ADC

Russell Swerdlow, M.D., is the Director of the University of Kansas Alzheimer’s Disease Center and the University of Kansas Medical Center Neurodegenerative Disorders Program. Dr. Swerdlow is a professor in the Departments of Neurology, Molecular and Integrative Physiology, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. After receiving his undergraduate and doctor of medicine degrees from New York University, he trained as a neurologist and cognitive disorders subspecialist at the University of Virginia.

In addition to his clinical side, Dr. Swerdlow is a laboratory-based neuroscientist who is internationally known for his work on mitochondrial dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Swerdlow’s laboratory is currently studying the interaction between genes and cell energy metabolism, the molecular consequences of altered cell energy metabolism, and strategies for repairing defective energy metabolism.

The Pacific Udall Center and the Stanford Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center host an ongoing seminar series from 4-5 PM each month. Please join us for a gathering among physicians and scientists interested in learning more about mechanisms of brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases and in developing interventions. All interested faculty, trainees and staff are welcome to attend. Please contact: Anna Ogi, aogi@stanford.edu or Nusha Askari, PhD, askarin@stanford.edu for additional information.
