The Alzheimer’s Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART) has named Duke Anesthesiology’s Niccolò Terrando, PhD, as its 2019 New Investigator Award recipient.
“Thank you to ISTAART and the Perioperative PIA for this recognition,” says Terrando, associate professor in anesthesiology. “It is a great privilege to receive this award that highlights some of our contributions to this exciting field of perioperative medicine.”
Research in the Terrando laboratory focuses on surgery-induced neuroinflammation and perioperative neurocognitive disorders. He is the director of the Neuroinflammation and Cognitive Outcomes Laboratory within Duke Anesthesiology, which centers on the pathophysiology of postoperative delirium, particularly how neuroinflammation impacts memory and behavior. Terrando will receive the New Investigator Award at the 2019 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Los Angeles this July.
ISTAART is a professional society of the Alzheimer’s Association, representing scientists, physicians and other dementia professionals active in researching and understanding the causes and treatments of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The Alzheimer’s Association founded ISTAART in 2008 to offer additional support for the dementia research community.
