Kathleen A. Welsh-Bohmer, PhD, is a Professor within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Division of Medical Psychology) at Duke University Medical Center and holds a joint appointment in the Department of Medicine (Division of Neurology). Dr. Welsh-Bohmer was recruited by Duke University Medical Center in 1987 to join the newly formed Joseph and Kathleen Bryan Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, and she currently is the Director of that center. Dr. Welsh-Bohmer is best known for her work in the clinical detection of early-stage Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related dementias and the relationship of these diseases to genetic and environmental factors. She has been a leader in many multicenter collaborative studies of AD and currently leads the nationally known Cache County Memory Study, a population-based epidemiological investigation of mild cognitive impairment and AD. Dr. Welsh-Bohmer's clinical work focuses on neuropsychological assessment in neurodegenerative disorders, including AD and related dementias.
