Leah Cuddy

Over the past 12 years, my research has focused on investigating molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

I received my PhD in Pharmacology and Toxicology in 2015 from Western University in Canada and am currently a Research Assistant Professor of Neurology at Northwestern University. The overarching goal of my research program at Northwestern is to gain an in-depth understanding of how rare genetic mutations lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
