The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) is delighted to welcome Dr William Mobley, Distinguished Professor of Neurosciences, Florence Riford Chair for Alzheimer Disease Research, UC San Diego. Dr Mobley's work has played a central role defining the neurobiology of Down syndrome to decipher the basis for cognitive phenotypes, including Alzheimer’s disease, and identifying potential therapeutic targets.
The Mobley laboratory is working to understand the pathogenesis of developmental and age-related cognitive deficits in people with Down syndrome. Dr Mobley’s group is now involved in developing new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.
