    Salvatore Oddo, PhD

    Associate Professor
    ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center
    The Biodesign Institute
    School of Life Sciences
    Arizona State University

    Associate Professor
    Department of Basic Medical Sciences
    The University of Arizona College of Medicine - Phoenix

    Dr. Oddo received his undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Catania, Italy, and his graduate degree in Neurobiology of Learning and Memory from the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Oddo’s research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying memory deficits in Alzheimer’s disease. Using animal models, he showed that dysfunction signaling transduction pathways that are critical for learning and memory play a pivotal role in the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease.  Currently, he is the Principal Investigator of a grant from the National Institute of Health, which is focused on elucidating the role of the mammalian target of rapamycin on the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease.  Dr. Oddo has published more than 70 research articles in international peer-reviewed journals. In recognition of his contribution to the aging and Alzheimer’s disease fields, he has been the recipient of several national and international awards.
