Dr Jon Rohrer…

Dr Rohrer's research has focused on the neuroimaging and neuropsychology of frontotemporal dementia (FTD), particularly in relation to their underlying genetic causes. Research in the field of FTD has led to the publication of over 100 Pubmed-referenced papers and he has spoken at a number of international conferences about the work. Since 2011 he has co-ordinated the Genetic FTD Initiative, GENFI, a multicentre cohort study of presymptomatic genetic FTD, and has been the clinical lead for the International FTD GWAS Consortium. He has also set up FTD UK , an annual scientific meeting of UK researchers who work in the FTD field (running since 2011), and runs a website dedicated to providing research updates to the general public about FTD: FTD talk.
