Dr. Seeley received his MD from the UCSF School of Medicine. He then completed an Internal Medicine internship at UCSF and Neurology residency at the Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals. He is currently an Associate Professor of Neurology at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, where he participates in patient evaluation and management. He is also Director of the UCSF Neurodegenerative Disease Brain Bank.
Dr. Seeley’s research concerns regional vulnerability in neurodegenerative disease, that is, why particular disorders target specific neuronal populations. Dr. Seeley addresses this question through behavioral, functional imaging and neuropathological studies. The goal of his research is to determine what makes brain tissues susceptible or resistant to disease, with an eye toward translating these findings into novel treatment approaches.
