Peter Davies, Ph.D.

Clinical Professor, Department of Pathology

Professor, Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience

Scientific Director of the Litwin-Zucker Center for the Study of Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders, Feinstein Institute for Medical Research

Professional Interests

The lab works on mechanisms important for the development of Alzheimer's disease, using a wide variety of biochemical, cell biological and molecular tools. Much of the current work is focused on human brain tissues, although transgenic mouse and cell culture models of specific aspects of the pathology are also examined.
