Research Faculty | James Brewer, MD, PhD

Dr. James Brian Brewer’s research program focuses on the development and application of advanced neuroimaging approaches for early detection of Alzheimer’s in the clinical setting and also as a measure of the efficacy of new drugs under development. He conducted studies that led to FDA and international regulatory clearance of a widely used tool for brain structure analysis that has been used to assess brain atrophy in over 100,000 clinical patients. Dr. Brewer directs the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and heads the Imaging Core for the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study.
