Dr. Rabinovici is the Edward Fein and Peral Landright Endowed Professor in Memory & Aging. He received his BS degree from Stanford University and MD from Northwestern University Medical School.
He completed an internship in internal medicine at Stanford University, neurology residency (and chief residency) at UCSF and a behavioral neurology fellowship at the Memory and Aging Center (MAC).
Dr. Rabinovici participates in patient evaluations and management. On the research front, he leads the MAC PET imaging program, is principal investigator of a cohort study of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and of Imaging Dementia: Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (IDEAS), a U.S.-wide study sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to assess the clinical utility of amyloid PET in 18,500 Medicare beneficiaries. His work investigates how structural, functional and molecular brain imaging techniques can be used to improve diagnostic accuracy in dementia. He studies the biology of neurodegenerative diseases, with the goal of accelerating treatment development.
Dr. Rabinovici’s work is supported by the National Institutes of Health, the Alzheimer’s Association, the American College of Radiology, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the Tau Consortium, the Association for Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration and industry partners. Awards recognizing his work include the 2015 Christopher Clark Award for Advancement of the Field of Amyloid Imaging, the 2012 American Academy of Neurology Research Award in Geriatric Neurology and the 2010 Best Paper in Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging: New Investigator Award from the Alzheimer’s Association.
