Emily Rothwell awarded NIH postdoc fellowship

Postdoctoral associate Emily Rothwell was awarded a Ruth L. Kirschstein
National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) to investigate preclinical symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease,
including sleep, altered emotion regulation, and cognitive decline.
Rothwell conducts her research in the lab of Agnes Lacreuse with a non-human
primate model that naturally develops Alzheimer’s-like neuropathology
during aging. She is collaborating with NSB faculty member Elena Vazey
to look for indicators of neuronal loss and early signs of
neuropathology. The goal of Rothwell’s work is to associate behavioral
with neural indicators in order to facilitate early diagnosis of, and
treatment intervention for, Alzheimer’s Disease. Congratulations to Emily!
