San Diego Union-Tribune

UC San Diego has recruited a prominent Canadian neurologist to rebuild and lead a major Alzheimer’s disease research program that was gutted last year by the University of Southern California during a controversial takeover attempt.

Dr. Howard Feldman comes to La Jolla from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, where he achieved international acclaim for his examination of dementia and for carrying out large-scale drug trials. A science journal nicknamed him the “master of dementia.” He’s also known as a rainmaker for his ability to raise money for research.
