Biography

Mirta Mihovilovic has been working at the Duke University Medical Center since September 1st 1984. Her professional interests overlapped with those of Dr. Allen D. Roses, who was Chief of the division of Neurology. At that time, he gave her the opportunity to accommodate her interest on nicotinic acetyl choline receptors to ongoing work at the division’s Research Laboratory.

For the 32 years that she has been associated with Duke Neurology, she has witnessed multiple scientific breakthroughs at the division, now Department, of Neurology. The most striking, in the early 90’s, was the report that, depending on genotype, the APOE gene which codes for apolipoprotein E, a lipid carrier protein, influences the age of onset for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It is fair to say that APOE led the way to today’s TOMMorrow study, named after the TOMM40 gene which, depending on genotype, affects the development of AD.
