Our incredible special guest tonight is Dr. Peg Nopoulos from University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics where her primary clinical work has been working in the HD Center of Excellence. She is currently a professor in Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Neurology and she is an active faculty member of our Neuroscience Graduate Program. In 2001 she developed a program, the Iowa Medical Student Research Program that she continues to direct. She is an accomplished researcher focusing on understanding brain and behavior, using state of the art brain imaging techniques, specifically Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Dr. Nopoulos is interested in aspects of understanding normal healthy brain such as differences in brain structure and function between the sexes as well as understanding how the brain changes with development through adolescence.
