Description: Frank M. LaFerla, Director of the Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, and Professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at UC Irvine, is a neuroscientist whose major focus of research is Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. His laboratory developed the first mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease with both plaques and tangles, and is currently involved in translational research to evaluate several drug candidates for potential human clinical trials.
