The Neuroimaging Informatics and Analysis Center is pleased to welcome Bill Seeley, M.D., Associate Professor of Neurology, Memory & Aging Center at the University of California, San Francisco, to the 2011 NIL-NIAC Seminar Series.
Seeley is a clinician-researcher who integrates microscopy, magnetic resonance imaging, and clinical examination to explore the structural, functional, and behavioral aspects of human neurodegenerative disease. Seeley concentrates on frontotemporal dementia, a family of devastating neurological syndromes usually afflicting people in midlife, and second only to Alzheimer’s as the primary cause of progressive pre-senile dementia.
Seeley was also recently named a 2011 Fellow of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
This lecture is being co-sponsored by the Hope Center for Neurological Disorders at the Washington University School of Medicine.
