The Ances Lab is a neuroscience research lab at Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis that is focused on:
- Developing structural and functional neuroimaging biomarkers of normal aging and neurodegeneration (including Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), HIV Associated Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND), and Creutzfeld-Jacob Disease (CJD))
- Therapeutic interventions to improve neurocognitive deficits associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
The lab utilizes state-of-the-art techniques and analytical approaches to address its scientific and clinical goals by coupling behavioral assessments and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Under the direction of Dr. Beau Ances the lab supports post-doctoral research associates, residents, medical students, graduate students, and undergraduates in their research and educational development.
