Dr. Joanna Hellmuth is neurologist with sub-specialty training in cognitive and behavioral neurology who focuses on virally-associated cognitive disorders. She practices at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, where she evaluates and manages patients with mild cognitive impairment; neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body disease, frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia; patients with HIV-related cognitive changes; and patients with cognitive post-acute sequelae of COVID-19. Dr. Hellmuth completed her bachelor's degree at the Johns Hopkins University, a master's degree from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and her medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine. She completed her neurology residency at the University of California, San Francisco and later joined the Memory and Aging Center for fellowship training prior to joining the faculty in the department of Neurology. Dr. Hellmuth's research interests are unraveling the neuroimmunologic mechanisms of virally-associated cognitive disorders, including HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND) and cognitive post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 with the goal of developing effective treatments and preventive interventions.
