There have been innumerable research works carried out in this respect but the most valuable one is accounted to the name of Michael Mullan. He is a well known biomedical researcher who has been working in the field of neurological disorders since a long time. He has shown great interest and worked diligently towards health care and finding solutions for chronic brain diseases.

Later on in the year 1990, he was awarded the fellowship from the Royal College of Psychiatrists. From there he began his first research work on Alzheimers disease. Since his academic life, he has been presenting his invaluable works on molecular genetics and brain disorders at important conferences at both national and international levels, professional meetings and seminars held around the world. He wrote several articles on Nature and Nature Genetics wherein he described in detail about molecular genetics and its related phenomena. He wrote most of the articles as senior author.
Research Works of Dr. Mullan
Dr. Mullan has been appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of the Roskamp Institute. This prestigious institute is situated in Sarasota, Florida. This institute was established by Dr. Mullan to carry out extensive research works towards various brain disorders including Alzheimers disease, autism, Gulf War Illness, and many more. The most adulated research work of Dr. Mullan is related to Alzheimer and the widely known Swedish Mutation. He holds several patents to his name which describe the mutations in the Amyloidal Precursor Protein APP genes. He was assisted by Dr. Fiona Crawford in this endeavour. Further, he has developed the Roskamp Institute into a fully equipped institute where researchers can utilize the state of the art facilities to investigate the factors responsible for the onset and effects of Alzheimers.
Along with a team of expert neuroscientists, he has also discovered a Brain Recovery Index to detect the level of persistence of Alzheimer in a person is brain. At this institute he also started several drug discovery programs to develop cures for the multifarious brain diseases. He has also examined thoroughly the role of beta amyloidal in inflammation. He has also carried out researches towards the detection of vascular factors which possibly lead to the Alzheimers disease and other neurological disorders.
What is the Roskamp Institute Memory Centre?
The Roskamp Institute Memory Centre RIMC is a part of the reputed Roskamp Institute. Michael Mullan serves as the Director of this institute. The RIMC consists of some of the most adept neuroradiology, geriatrics and neuropsychologists. This institute provides free of cost memory screens for people who are at the age of 60 or above. These memory screens are comprises of written questionnaires which can be filled at the clinic or home. Further, a short memory test is conducted at this institute for early detection of dementia. Many other assessments are carried out at the RIMC to help patients lead a smoother life ahead.
These facts prove the dedication of Mullan towards his aspirations. He has given a lot to the world through his research works.
