Research Information

To better understand the healthy brain, Dr. Nygaard leads a project to sequence the genomes of centenarians in search for a genetic cause of dementia-free aging. As both a clinician and a scientist, Dr. Nygaard hopes to bridge the gap between basic science and clinical neurology to facilitate novel therapeutic development in Alzheimer’s disease.
