Inma Cobos, MD, PhD

Dr. Inma Cobos received her MD in 1996, and PhD in 2000, from the University of Murcia, Spain, then did post-doctoral training in developmental neurobiology at the University of California, San Francisco (2001-07). She next pursued a clinical residency and fellowship in anatomic pathology and neuropathology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Harvard Medical School (2011-15). At MGH, Dr. Cobos trained with world-class leaders in neuropathology, neurology, neuroimaging and molecular pathology. As the Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC) fellow, she was responsible for the processing, analysis and diagnosis of brains donated to the ADRC Brain Bank. This intensive training provided her with exceptional experience-based knowledge in the diagnosis and classification of neurodegenerative diseases and clinicopathological correlations. Dr. Cobos is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Division of Neuropathology, at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and the Ronald Reagan Medical Center. Her laboratory focuses on understanding the basic mechanisms underlying the generation and maintenance of cell diversity in the brain, and the cellular and molecular basis of selective vulnerability in neurodegeneration. As a neuropathologist with extensive experience in molecular, cellular, and developmental neuroscience, Dr. Cobos is well positioned to significantly contribute to our understanding of the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders.
