Dr. Andrew Saykin is the Raymond C. Beeler Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Professor of Medical and Molecular Genetics, the Director of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center, and the Director of the Indiana University Center for Neuroimaging. Dr. Saykin’s research program focuses on the use of brain imaging and genomic methods to study mechanisms of memory dysfunction and treatment response in neurological and psychiatric disorders. Current projects examine advanced imaging methods for early preclinical detection of Alzheimer’s disease, the neural basis of cancer chemotherapy-induced cognitive changes, and alterations in brain activity and connectivity in schizophrenia. Each project includes a component examining genomic correlates of brain imaging phenotypic markers.
