Here, he used his practical knowledge of Alzheimer and molecular genetics in teaching a Behavioural Medicine Course to the Medical students. Here, he also served as a Ph.D. supervisor to multiple programs. Dr. Mullan is currently serving as the CEO and President at Roskamp Institute which was founded by him in 1998.

This institute is located in Sarasota city of Florida. It is a non-profit biomedical research institute which focuses on novel treatments for neurological disorders including Traumatic Brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and Autism. Here, he also developed the Brain Reserve Index Score. He is also serving as the CEO at Star Scientific Inc and is the President of Sci-Brain. He holds more than a dozen patents and about 200 scientific publications to his name.

What is Brain Reserve Index?

Dr. Mullan is a well-known neuropsychiatric scientist and has done exemplary work in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and other related brain disorders. At the Roskamp Institute, he alongwith his team of neuroscientists developed a Brain Reserve Index. This index gives the numerical estimates of the risks of developing Alzheimer’s disease in a person’s brain. This index is winning accolades from the scientists around the world and has proved to be the most accurate index discovered so far.

Dr. Mullan has not concentrated his research to only Alzheimer’s disease but also to other disorders including dementia, Parkinson, Gulf War Syndrome and many more.
