Bradley Christian, PhD
University of Wisconsin, Madison
Dr. Christian’s research and mentoring activities focus on developing and translating novel neuroimaging methods and PET radiotracers for the study of human development and neurodegeneration. This involves using neuroimaging to investigate neurochemical changes in the brain and studying novel radioligands to characterize neurotransmitter-protein interactions and how they are influenced by development, genes, environment and aging. He is also the Co-director of the Brain Imaging Lab and Director of the PET Imaging Core for the UW Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC). He is currently Co-PI of the Alzheimer’s Biomarker Consortium – Down Syndrome (ABC-DS) project, a multicenter study of the progression of Alzheimer’s disease related biomarkers in adults with Down syndrome.
