The Penn Frontotemporal Degeneration Center brings together an energetic team of creative clinicians and researchers dedicated to the investigation and treatment of early onset neurodegenerative conditions. Our Center members include neurologists, neuropathologists, neuroscientists, geneticists, genetic counselors, neuropsychologists, nurses, social workers, and clinical research coordinators, all targeting a cure for Frontotemporal degeneration .
The Penn Frontotemporal Degeneration Center also enjoys rich collaborations with colleagues within the University of Pennsylvania such as the Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research, the Institute on Aging, and the Penn Image Computing and Science Lab. Research partners outside of the University of Pennsylvania include Washington University in St. Louis, Emory University, Brandeis University, Johns Hopkins University, and the Mayo Clinic.
Intellectual diversity, creativity and strong collaborative partnerships uniquely position the Penn Frontotemporal Degeneration Center to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients, conduct translational research to improve diagnostic and prognostic accuracy, improve understanding of the biological basis of Frontotemporal degeneration spectrum disorders, and train the next generation of physicians and researchers as we move toward a cure.
