    Dr. Duke Han is a diplomate of the American Board of Professional Psychology in clinical neuropsychology, Director of Neuropsychology in the Department of Family Medicine, and an Associate Professor of Family Medicine, Neurology, Psychology, and Gerontology at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Dr. Han is interested in the factors that impact cognition and decision making in aging. He also has special interests in using novel neuroimaging and statistical approaches to better understand these factors. Dr. Han maintains an active research collaboration with the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, where he was most recently a tenured faculty member. He is the recipient of the Paul B. Beeson Career Development Award in Aging Research, which is supported by the National Institute on Aging, the American Federation of Aging Research (AFAR), and the John A. Hartford Foundation. Dr. Han is actively involved in peer-review of research grants for the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and manuscripts for over 30 scientific journals. He is on the editorial board for the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, and is a member of the Governance Committee of the Global Council for Brain Health, an independent science collaborative convened by the AARP and AgeUK. At the Keck School of Medicine of USC, he was awarded the distinction of Clinical Scholar, which is an honor given by the President of the University. Dr. Han currently holds leadership or mentorship roles in the International Neuropsychological Society (INS), the National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN), the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN), and the Society of Clinical Neuropsychology (Division 40) of the American Psychological Association.
