Daniel Ohm PhD
Dan is a neuroscientist and research associate of the Digital Neuropathology lab associated with the FTD Center. Dan completed his PhD in Neuroscience at Northwestern University where he received training from Drs. Emily Rogalski, Changiz Geula, and M.-Marsel Mesulam. With a passion for neuroanatomy and how it changes in disease, his current work is centered on investigating the vulnerability of select regions and cell types to tau or TDP-43 proteinopathies. One major goal of his K01-funded research is to identify the neuronal circuits underlying behavioral changes and cognitive impairments characteristic of neurodegenerative disorders including frontotemporal dementia. When not behind a microscope, Dan loves hiking mountains, photographing nature, and teaching his dog new tricks.
