Irene Litvan

Professor, Neurosciences, UC San Diego

My major research goals are to better understand the causes, find biological markers and identifying novel neuroprotective treatments for patients with neurodegenerative disorders with parkinsonism or dementia symptoms. I am a movement disorder specialist, behavioral neurologist and neuroepidemiologist. I am committed to better diagnose neurodegenerative disorders presenting with parkinsonism and/or dementia and have participated in the development of diagnostic criteria for all of them. I am very interested in finding biological markers that could assist in the diagnoses of these disorders. I have the appropriate expertise to be able to collaborate in this exciting project.
