Annabelle Catherine Singer, PhD

Georgia Institute of Technology

Annabelle Singer is an Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University. Her research aims to understand how neural activity produces memories and controls brain immune function. Dr. Singer has shown how coordinated activity across neurons represents spatial memories and fails in animal models of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Singer found that driving gamma frequency activity alters brain immune function and reduces pathology in mice. Using non-invasive approaches, she is translating her discoveries from rodents to humans. After receiving her Ph.D. in Neuroscience with Loren Frank at UCSF, Dr. Singer completed a post-doc with Ed Boyden at MIT.
