Meghan Short, Ph.D.

Meghan Short, Ph.D., is a biostatistician and bioinformatician. Dr. Short’s research interests involve the use and integration of omics data to understand complex biological underpinnings of Alzheimer’s Disease and brain aging. Current and proposed projects include identifying networks of proteins in the plasma proteome in older adults and relating them to brain MRI measures and incident dementia, and examining changes in the gut microbiome related to neurodegeneration. She has also been a statistical analyst for a range of epidemiological studies of cardiovascular risk factors and has developed statistical methods for clinical trials and epidemiological studies with clustered binary outcomes.

Jamie Walker, M.D., Ph.D.

Studies focus on dementia and successful aging. “Successful agers” are resistant or resilient to the Alzheimer-type neuropathologic changes that develop in many people as they age. Understanding the process of resistance or resilience to these neuropathologic changes in successful agers will bring insight into mechanisms of prevention and ideally lead o the development of therapeutic interventions for dementia.
