Dr David Bennett, Rush Alzheimer Disease Center, Chicago, USA
Dr David A Bennett is Director of the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center and the Robert C Borwell Professor of Neurological Sciences at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. He is principal of several grants from the NIH including the Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center, the Religious Orders Study, and the Rush Memory and Aging Project. His pioneering prospective analytic clinical−pathological cohort studies have linked a wide range of multi-level genomic data, experiential, psychological, and medical risk factors to the trajectories of cognitive change and the development of Alzheimer’s disease and other common chronic conditions of aging over multiple years before death. His studies include the investigation of peripheral blood biomarkers, ante-mortem and post-mortem neuroimaging, biomedical devices, sleep, behavioral-economics and neuroeconomics, neuroimmunology, neuropathology, and neurobiological indices, as well as deep brain omics including epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. These data feed a computational pipeline for novel drug target discovery followed by preclinical validation and drug screens. Dr Bennett serves on several international advisory committees. He has more than 600 peer-reviewed manuscript publications, more than 62 000 citations and an h-index of 120.
