Former Beeson scholar Scott Small, MD, published research in the journal Nature Neuroscience on December 22 that used high-resolution functional MRI imaging to discern how, where, and why Alzheimer’s develops in the lateral entorhinal cortex (LEC), and over time, spreads from the LEC to other areas of the cerebral cortex.

Dr. Small was a 2000 recipient of the Paul Beeson Career Development Award in Aging Research. He is currently the Boris and Rose Katz Professor of Neurology, professor of radiology, and director of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center.
