The April issue of the The Pathologist (pages 36-38) featured a study by Dr. Liana Apostolova on a multimodal approach for predicting brain amyloidosis using cognitive assessment, brain imaging and a simple blood test for Alzheimer’s disease. Apostolova is an Associate Professor-In-Residence of Neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and Director of the Neuroimaging Laboratory at the Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research at UCLA.
Dr. Liana Apostolova, an Associate Professor of Neurology and member of the Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research, was featured widely by the media about two of her research studies. One study showed that a simple blood test could be developed to confirm the presence of beta amyloid proteins in the brain, which is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease; the other was the development of a “gold standard” way of measuring atrophy in the brain, another characteristic of the disease.
