Dr. Ozioma Okonkwo awarded Diversity Supplement


Congratulations to Dr. Ozioma Okonkwo for his newly awarded Diversity Supplement grant from NIH. His project is titled “Neuromorphometric alterations in middle-aged adults with family history of Alzheimer’s disease: Relationship to genetic variants” and will characterize the earliest neuromorphometric changes that accompany Alzheimer’s disease.
Additionally, he will will investigate the potential influence of candidate genetic variants on these neuromorphometric changes. The project proposes to use sophisticated, yet clinically-available and readily deployable neuroimaging data and analytic tools.
