Biography

Dr. Grutzendler obtained his MD at Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Colombia where he was born and raised. He completed a medical internship in Internal Medicine and a residency in Neurology at Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. This was followed by a combined clinical and research fellowship in the Alzheimer Disease Research Center and the Department of Neurobiology at Washington University and further neurobiology research training at the Skirball Institute of New York University. Dr. Grutzendler's clinical interests focus on neurodegenerative disorders with special emphasis in dementias such as Alzheimer's disease. He also leads a research laboratory focused on understanding how neurons interact with glial cells and blood vessels in health and disease. His lab uses advanced microscopy to visualize neurons, endothelium, astrocytes, pericytes, microglia and oligodendrocytes in living animals with the goal of exploring their dynamic behavior and learning how cell-cell interactions are disrupted in various disease models such as stroke, demyelination and Alzheimer's disease.
