Dr. Saykin joined the Indiana University School of Medicine faculty in November 2006 as the Raymond C. Beeler Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences to direct the I.U. Center for Neuroimaging. He also holds appointments in the departments of Medical and Molecular Genetics, Neurology and Psychiatry. In February 2013, he was appointed director of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center (IADC), one of 29 centers sponsored by the National Institute on Aging for research on AD and related dementias. Dr. Saykin's current research program focuses on the use of brain imaging, genomic and biomarker methods to study mechanisms of memory dysfunction and treatment response. Current projects focus on early detection of Alzheimer's disease and related work examines cognitive changes associated with cancer chemotherapy, brain injury and schizophrenia. On a national level, Dr. Saykin leads the Genetics Core of the 57 site Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), a landmark study sponsored by the National Institute on Aging, the Alzheimer's Association and industry partners. He has been a member of multiple NIH review groups and the Board of Directors of the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology and the International Neuropsychological Society. Dr. Sayking is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Brain Imaging and Behavior, a Springer journal.
