Dr. Apostolova is a Distinguished Professor and the Barbara and the Peer Baekgaard Professor of Alzheimer’s Disease Research at Indiana University School of Medicine. She is an internationally recognized clinical investigator and the lead principal investigator of the Longitudinal Early-onset AD (EOAD) study (LEADS). Dr. Apostolova has made important contributions to the imaging and imaging genetics biomarker fields. Her work is bringing us closer to unraveling the heritable risk factors of sporadic AD and has generated fundamental insights into the biomarkers of AD and related disorders hinting at new and overlooked disease-associated mechanisms. Her foundational work in the LEADS study – a prospective longitudinal multi-site, observational clinical and biomarker study of EOAD, conducted at key AD research hubs and clinical sites across the U.S., explores the unique features of atypical AD yielding novel insights into the mechanisms, heterogeneity and heritability of AD. Dr. Apostolova is the Editor-in-Chief for Alzheimer’s Disease: Diagnosis, Assessment and Disease Monitoring.
