Meaghan Morris, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor of pathology at Johns Hopkins University. In addition to her clinical practice in neuropathology, she leads a basic research program focusing on understanding the molecular basis of Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related dementias, with the ultimate goal of identifying new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease treatment. These investigations combine insights from brain tissue donated by patients with age-related neurodegenerative diseases, studies in cell culture models, and cutting-edge molecular techniques to uncover new pathways involved in Alzheimer’s disease. Her current research focuses on the role of tau in the brain and mechanisms of tau dysfunction in age-related tau aggregation and in Alzheimer’s disease.
