Speakers

Roger Albin, MD
Roger L. Albin, M.D. (Residency 1986), is a professor of neurology, associate chair for research and co-director of the Movement Disorders Clinic in the Department of Neurology in the University of Michigan Medical School. In addition, he serves as chief of neuroscience research at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center. The present focus of Dr. Albin's group is uncovering the basis for non-motor (sleep disorders, depression, dementia, autonomic dysfunction) problems in Parkinson's disease. He is very interested in applying positron emission tomography (PET) imaging methods to improve diagnosis of dementing disorders like Alzheimer's disease. The hope is that understanding how specific brain alterations cause specific clinical features will lead to improved treatments. Dr. Albin currently serves as a site investigator for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Exploratory Trials in Parkinson disease (NET-PD) initiative.
