Clinical and Research Background

Dr. Latimer’s clinical specialty is neuropathology, which includes the clinical practice of neurosurgical, neuromuscular, ophthalmic, and autopsy subspecialties, with a particular interest in neurodegenerative disease. Dr. Latimer is also committed to research efforts focused on the role of the synapse in neurodegenerative disease with the goal of understanding the changes that occur at the earliest stages of disease and how these changes differ in individuals without neurodegenerative disease. Dr. Latimer additionally works with neuroimaging experts through the Integrated Brain Imaging Center to bridge the gap between neuroradiology and neuropathology and enhance targeted sampling through the use of neuroimaging data and techniques.
