Welcome to the Galvan Lab

Work at the Galvan laboratory is focused on the identification of molecular and biochemical alterations that cause Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. We use genetic manipulations in rodents, biochemical physiological, and behavioral approaches, in vivo optical brain imaging, MRI- and PET-based functional imaging as well as cellular and molecular biology tools to understand the triggering events in Alzheimer's and other dementias, determine the potential of drug candidate molecules, and define the mechanisms involved. The Galvan laboratory is located on the third floor of the South Texas Centers for Biology in Medicine Building at the Texas Research Park Campus  at the University of Texas Health San Antonio.
