What have researchers learned from brain donations?

By September 4, 2019Community Events

Tune in this Friday, September 6 @ 9AM for the next episode of our monthly Facebook LIVE series, “What have researchers learned from brain donations?” This month, we’re joined by Edwin Monuki, MD, PhD.

Dr. Monuki is a neuropathologist, meaning he specializes in the diagnosis of brain diseases by examining post-mortem tissue. His research aims to improve understanding of an understudied brain tissue known as the choroid plexus in an effort to develop potential new therapies for brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Dr. Monuki earned his medical and doctoral degrees from UC San Diego and currently serves as Professor and Warren L. Bostick Chair of Pathology for the UC Irvine School of Medicine.
