About Me

The Crary laboratory is an NIH-funded program focusing on the molecular neuropathology of neurodegenerative diseases. Using an interdisciplinary approach, we are unraveling the molecular changes occurring in diseases with neurofibrillary tangles composed of the tau protein (i.e., tauopathies). This diverse set of brain diseases includes dementias, such as Alzheimer's disease, and movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease and related conditions. The Crary laboratory uses computational, histological, genetic, biochemical and molecular approaches to pinpoint underlying molecular and cellular triggers of these diseases.

Dr. Crary runs the Crary Laboratory and the Neuropathology Brain Bank and Research CoRE at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
