UCSF dementia expert Bill Seeley wins $500,000 MacArthur fellowship

Dr. William Seeley, an associate professor of neurology at the University of California, San Francisco’s Memory and Aging Center, won one of 22 no-strings-attached John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation fellowships of $500,000.
Focusing on why particular dementias targets specific populations of neurons, Seeley, 39, uses magnetic resonance imaging, microscopy and clinical exams to look at the structural, functional and behavioral aspects of neurodegenerative disease.
