Joseph Quinn, M.D.



Genetics and Biomarkers Core Director
Professor of Neurology




Dr. Quinn has served as a neurologist clinician in the Oregon Alzheimer's Disease Center since 1994 and has served as Director of the Genetics and Biomarkers Core since 2007.

Dr. Quinn's overall research focus is on developing strategies for treating and preventing Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Specific research projects range from animal studies testing experimental agents, up to large national multi-center clinical trials of experimental drugs for dementing illnesses. The translation of ideas from the laboratory to the clinic is a particular interest, which is served in part by the Biomarkers core of the Oregon Alzheimer's Center.  The Biomarkers Core helps develop blood tests and other disease markers for use in "proof of concept" clinical trials which are necessary to move treatment ideas from animal models to human subjects.
