    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Robert J. Dawe, PhD, is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center. He helps to develop new techniques for the postmortem imaging program within the RADC Lab. By comparing postmortem magnetic resonance images against histopathology data, he hopes to discover that it may be possible to develop and validate methods for early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s during life.

    Dawe received his undergraduate degree and his PhD in biomedical engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
