Adam W Bero, PhD

Dr. Bero is a Postdoctoral Associate in the laboratory of Dr. Li-Huei Tsai at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He completed his Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis working with Dr. David Holtzman where he investigated the mechanisms by which specific neural networks are targeted by amyloid-β deposition in Alzheimer’s disease. His current work utilizes a molecules-to-circuits approach to elucidate mechanisms that mediate memory function and dysfunction in normal and diseased brain. In addition to his BrightFocus award, Dr. Bero is the recipient of the Olin Medical Scientist Fellowship and the Hope Center Award for Research in Translational Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis.
