Areas of Research

Kinga Szigeti, MD, PhD

As director of the Translational Genomics Research Laboratory, Kinga Szigeti, MD, PhD, seeks to identify novel risk factors and potential pathways that can be targeted with medications to prevent or modify the course of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Our department makes significant contributions to research in many areas of neurology, exploring novel treatments, disease processes and genetic factors of neurological conditions.

Our faculty members and fellows engage in innovative translational, basic and clinical research in areas including remyelination, neuropsychology and stroke prevention. A major focus of faculty research involves neuroimaging analysis and quantitative imaging to better understand neurodegenerative disorders.

Our clinical research seeks improved treatments and quality of life for patients with Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, autism, multiple sclerosis, neuropathies and myasthenia gravis, among other conditions.
