Kwaku received his Bachelor of Health Science and MSc with Thesis in Neuroscience from Calgary University. Under the mentorship of Dr. Gordon Teskey, he studied epilepsy and hippocampal learning and memory. Kwaku is excited to contribute to the research on Alzheimer's and related disorders at the UCLA Easton Center.
