Instructor in Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital
Dr. Choi’s interest in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) began when he was a master’s degree student at Seoul National University College of Medicine. He studied toxic proteins causing AD, and developed anti-AD agents to ameliorate the symptoms of the disease. During his Ph.D. study at the University of Chicago, Dr. Choi expanded his interest to researching adult neurogenesis in AD and genes causing familial cases of AD.
He currently is working as an instructor at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The goal of his current CAF-funded research is to investigate the role of the blood-brain barrier in AD pathogenesis using a 3D microfluidic platform.
