Biography

 Dr. Mufson received his doctorate in biological psychology from Downstate Medical Center, New York, and was a postdoctoral fellow and an assistant professor in neuroscience in the Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Hospital, Harvard Medical School. While there, he produced a series of classic papers on the connectivity and chemistry of the central cholinergic system in the forebrain and brainstem, a crucial brain region involved in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

During the late 1980s, Dr. Mufson became the Associate Director of the Sun Heath Research Institute, Sun City, Arizona, where he assisted in the development of a brain bank. In 1991, Dr. Mufson was recruited to the Department of Neurological Sciences at Rush University Medical Center, in Chicago, to develop a research program in the molecular biology of pre-symptomatic AD.
