Norbert Schuff, PhD, is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. He is Co-Director of the Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Interest Group at UCSF and he is a Professor in the Department of Radiology at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Schuff received his BSc in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. In 1981, he earned his MSc in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Heidelberg, and he completed his PhD in Physics from the University of Heidelberg in 1983, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in Radiology from UCSF in 1993.
Dr. Schuff studies neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson's using MRIs. His primary interest is to develop and improve imaging methods and applications used for imaging markers of these diseases, with the technical interest of improving image feature extracting, statistical learning, and theoretic informational approaches to magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Schuff is also interested in the development of high magnetic field MRI methods for quantification of brain structure, function, cerebral perfusion and diffusion as well as the development of multivariate statistical methods for correlating clinical measures to MRI changes.
Dr. Schuff has published 166 articles and he has written 25 book chapters, 192 abstracts, and 5 significant publications. His articles have appeared in the International Journal of Alzheimer’s Diseases, the Journal of Alzheimer’s Diseases, the Journal of Radiology, the American Journal of Neuroradiology, the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, the Journal of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Journal, and the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
