      Dr. Judy Pa is a new assistant professor at the Institute for Neuroimaging and Informatics in the Keck School of Medicine and the department of Neurology. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Alzheimer’s disease at UC San Francisco and then served five years as a faculty member. Dr. Pa’s research is focused on identifying individuals at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, understanding how Alzheimer’s pathology impacts brain function in the living brain, and developing ways to remediate cognitive and brain dysfunction. Judy's research is supported by two early career awards from the National Institutes of Health and the Alzheimer’s Association. Judy is also dedicated to teaching and is looking forward to training students in USC's new Neuroimaging masters program and the USC Neuroscience Graduate Program.
