Corey McMillan is an Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania where he is also a Co-Director of the Penn Frontotemporal Degeneration Center. His research program focuses on age-associated neurodegenerative conditions, including Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) which are conditions that share common TDP-43 pathology and but present with a range of clinical syndromes. By testing biologically-grounded hypotheses with the use of novel analytic and multimodal neuroimaging (e.g., structural MRI, diffusion MRI) approaches, his lab integrates neuroimaging modalities with genomics (e.g., SNP genotypes, DNA methylation) to address the biological basis of disease heterogeneity. work.
