Clinical medicine is changing. We as physicians have learned that many chronic diseases are best cared for in a team environment, harnessing the expertise of multiple disciplines to provide a “360-degree” approach to caring for our patients. My plan is to integrate the multiple, excellent geriatric and dementia-focused clinicians and health care providers at UNC into a coherent and collaborative entity so that patients and their care partners have a “one-stop shop” to get evaluated and treated for disorders that affect their thinking and behavior (aka, dementia).

I also believe that an integral part of taking care of people whose disease doesn’t yet have a great treatment available is to bring them together with cutting-edge researchers and give them the opportunity to participate in research studies whose aim is to create better and more specific treatments for their condition. I work best as part of a team and hope to bring team science and care to the art of medicine at UNC.

Clinical Interests

  • Mild cognitive impairment, microvascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and normal pressure hydrocephalus

Research Interests

  • Better methods for distinguishing different types of dementia from each other using advanced neuroimaging as well as combining imaging with serum proteomic and metabolomic markers.
  • Conducting clinical trials to develop the next generation of therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease, and first-generation treatments for microvascular and multi-factorial dementia.
