Apostolova, Liana Neurology, School of Medicine / IUPUI
Bio: Liana G. Apostolova, MD, MSc, FAAN joined the IU School of Medicine as the Barbara and Peer Baekgaard Professor in Neurology, Radiology, Medical and Molecular Genetics at in June of 2015. She graduated Summa cum Laude from the Medical University, Sofia, Bulgaria in 1998, and completed Neurology residency training at University of Iowa and Dementia fellowship at UCLA. Dr. Apostolova is a prolific researcher with over 60 original peer-reviewed publications. Her research focuses on the early symptomatic and presymptomatic stages of Alzheimer's Disease and on the development and validation of sensitive imaging and genetic biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease and other dementing disorders. She is the Founding Director of the UCLA-Easton Neuroimaging Laboratory. Dr. Apostolova is former recipient of the highly prestigious K23 Beeson Career Development Award as well as several grants form the NIH, private foundations and industry. She was awarded the 2010 American Academy of Neurology Research Award in Geriatric Neurology, the 2010 American Federation for Aging Research GE-Healthcare Junior Investigator Award for Excellence in Imaging and Aging Research and the 2007 Turken Research Award. Dr. Apostolova has served as a research mentor to over 50 undergraduate, 16 graduate and 3 post-graduate students, as well as 3 junior faculty researchers to date. She serves as a Senior Associate Editor for the Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Disease Assessment and Monitoring journal and as the Chair of the Neuroimaging Professional Interest Area of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Dzemidzic, Mario Neurology, Radiology and Imaging Sciences, School of Medicine / IUPUI
Bio: Dr. Dzemidzic is a research faculty in the Departments of Neurology and Radiology and Imaging Sciences at the IU School of Medicine and has been working on neuroimaging, including connectivity, for almost 20 years. Being a nuclear physicist by training, he is familiar with a range of data acquisition, analysis and software techniques applications. Dr. Dzemidzic’s research focus is in the alcohol research with Drs. David Kareken and Karmen Yoder and he also work with Dr. Andrew Saykin in Alzheimer's disease research. In addition, together with Dr. Robert Considine, he has been involved in applying chemosensory probes to neuroimaging of human eating disorders, such as obesity. Finally, Dr. Dzemidzic is very interested in multi-modal imaging and statistical analysis, the research direction he is pursuing in collaboration with Dr. Jarek Harezlak, whose expertise in biostatistics well complements his imaging expertise. He has also been mentoring a number of junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students whose projects are neuroimaging-oriented.

Saykin, Andrew J. Radiology and Imaging Sciences, School of Medicine / IUPUI
Bio: Dr. Saykin is the Raymond C. Beeler Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University School of Medicine where he serves as director of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center and of the IU Center for Neuroimaging. He also holds appointments in Medical and Molecular Genetics, Neurology and Psychiatry. Before joining Indiana University in 2006 he served on the faculties of Dartmouth Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Saykin serves as Genetics Core leader of the NIA-sponsored multicenter Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). Other collaborative federally sponsored projects examine cognitive changes associated with cancer chemotherapy, brain injury and schizophrenia. Dr. Saykin is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Brain Imaging and Behavior. His current research program focuses on the integration of structural, functional and molecular brain imaging with genomic and biomarker methods to study mechanisms of memory dysfunction and therapeutic response. Major goals include development of tools for early detection of dysregulated brain networks in older adults at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and identification of novel therapeutic targets based on imaging genetics association studies.
