Welcome

The Grinberg lab is part of the UCSF Memory and Aging Center - a large and dynamic multi-professional group dedicated to researching the causes and cures for degenerative brain diseases. Our goal is to investigate and clarify the basic principles and pathogenesis of aging and early stage neurodegenerative disease using postmortem human tissue of normal controls and patients as the foundation. Our unique approach allows for simultaneous investigation of several aspects of the complex pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disease putting us in a strategic position for identifying therapeutic targets relevant to the earliest stages of these diseases years before the first clinical manifestations. Please see our research page for more information.
