Office Address:

  • “There’s a lot of lower-level head trauma out there that no one knows the consequence of,” says John Q. Trojanowski of PARC in a New York Times article. Trojanowski plans to submit a research paper in the coming months on people who have suffered traumatic brain injury. “We are looking at people with traumatic brain injury, football players, rugby players, some people who fell off bikes.”

  • John Q. Trojanowski of PARC spoke about the role that amyloid and tau may play in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and possible treatments in a Philadelphia Inquirer article. “What we need is combination therapy,” he said.

  • John Trojanowski is quoted in a recent Penn Medicine article which features a new online publication.
