Biography

Dr. Mufson is an Alzheimer’s Disease researcher at Barrow Neurological Institute as an Institutional Professor in the Division of Neurobiology. Dr. Mufson is the director of several active grants, including a National Institute on Aging-supported Program Project grant entitled the “Neurobiology of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) in the Elderly” and a Department of Defense grant to study brain trauma. Dr. Mufson received his doctorate in biological psychology from Downstate Medical Center, New York, and was a postdoctoral fellow and an assistant professor in neuroscience in the Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Hospital, Harvard Medical School. While there, he produced a series of classic papers on the connectivity and chemistry of the central cholinergic system in the forebrain and brainstem, a crucial brain region involved in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).During the late 1980s, Dr. Mufson became the Associate Director of the Sun Heath Research Institute, Sun City, Arizona, where he assisted in the development of a brain bank. In 1991, Dr. Mufson was recruited to the Department of Neurological Sciences at Rush University Medical Center, in Chicago, to develop a research program in the molecular biology of pre-symptomatic AD. Dr. Mufson is a pioneer in the application of single cell gene array technology to study the genetic signature of neurons during the progression of AD. He has published 297 peer-reviewed articles and more than 40 book chapters. In 2010, the Information Sciences Institute recognized Dr. Mufson as one of the 100 most highly cited researchers in neuroscience.
