    Collapse Overview
    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.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
