Logan C. Dumitrescu, MS, PhD, is a computational geneticist and an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She co-leads the Computational Neurogenomics Team at the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer’s Center and is an investigator in the Vanderbilt Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and the Vanderbilt Genetics Institute. Dr. Dumitrescu’s research interests focus on the molecular and genetic factors that contribute to risk and resilience from Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Her works often takes an interdisciplinary approach, leveraging biomarker, cognitive, neuroimaging, and ‘omic data sources in the context of large-scale genetic analyses of AD and longitudinal studies of aging. She is also specifically interested in identifying and characterizing sex-specific genetic drivers of AD endophenotypes.
