The Ances lab is a neuroscience research lab within the Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis that is focused on:

  1. Developing structural and functional neuroimaging biomarkers of normal aging and neurodegeneration–including Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), HIV Associated Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND), Alzheimer Disease (AD) and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)
  2. Therapeutic interventions to improve neurocognitive deficits associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
