About Demetrius Maraganore

Demetrius Michael Maraganore, MD, FAAN, is the B.J. and Eve Wilder Professor of Alzheimer’s disease at the University of Florida. His passion is helping patients to achieve successful brain aging, by preventing cognitive decline and dementia. His current research studies relate to 1) quality improvement and practice based research in neurology using the electronic medical record (EMR); 2) utilizing data from the EMR to predict Alzheimer’s and dementia risk; and 3) understanding resistance, resilience, and repair in the health span (“over 90’s study”). His clinical practice is in brain health (primary prevention of cognitive decline and dementia in at risk persons), and in the evaluation and management of memory disorders (including mild cognitive impairment and dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease).
