Lawren Vandevrede, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor
+1 415 353-2057
Fields of Interest: 

As an Assistant Professor of Neurology at UCSF, Dr. Lawren Vandevrede's overarching goal is to provide outstanding clinical care to patients with dementia and their caregivers. He completed his medical training in Chicago, where he also obtained a PhD degree in neuroscience working with his mentor to develop novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. He completed his intern year in medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital, his residency in neurology at Partners HealthCare in Boston, and his fellowship training at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center. His clinical and research interests are in advancing the care of patients with neurodegenerative disorders, either through development of novel therapeutics or increasing our understanding of the disease process.
