Meet Our Director
Dr. Thomas Mosley is the Hughes Chair and Director of the MIND Center. A professor of medicine-geriatrics, he has an extensive background in clinical neuropsychology, behavioral neurology and population-based studies in neuroepidemiology. Dr. Mosley's research efforts have been largely devoted to uncovering how and why the brain changes with age.
Mosley is the principal investigator for several NIH-funded studies including the large multi-site Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Neurocognitive Study. His work has led to discoveries about the brain that show that cognitive decline begins much earlier than previously thought, an insight that could translate into earlier detection, improved treatment and possible even prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.
