ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF GERONTOLOGY AND NEUROSCIENCE
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
LOS ANGELES, California – United States
Andrei Irimia is a neuroscientist and biogerontologist who utilizes neuroimaging and computational approaches to study how brain connectivity changes caused by neural injury and degeneration can contribute to cognitive degradation and recovery. After completing his PhD in biophysics at Vanderbilt University, he pursued postdoctoral studies at UCSD and UCLA. He then joined the University of Southern California, where he is now Director of the Aging, Imaging & Rehabilitation (AIR) Laboratory in the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. To study the human connectome, he has pioneered award-winning approaches which have allowed him to make contributions to our understanding of neural networks, traumatic brain injury and neurodegeneration. Prof. Irimia's research has been covered extensively by Discover Magazine, Scientific American, Nature and the New York Times. His research is funded by the National Institutes of Health and by the US Department of Defense.
