Andrew E. Budson, M.D. is Chief of Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology, Associate Chief of Staff for Education, and Director of the Center for Translational Cognitive Neuroscience at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Boston Healthcare System, Associate Director and Outreach, Recruitment, and Engagement (ORE) Core Leader at the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, Professor of Neurology at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine, and Lecturer in Neurology at Harvard Medical School. His training included graduating cum laude from Harvard Medical School, being chief resident of the Harvard-Longwood Neurology Residency Program, pursuing a fellowship in dementia at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and studying memory as a post-doctoral fellow in experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience at Harvard University. Dr. Budson has had government research funding since 1998, receiving a National Research Service Award and a Career Development Award in addition to a Research Project (R01) grant. He has given over 800 local, national, and international grand rounds and other academic talks. He has published over 150 papers, reviews, and book chapters and is a reviewer for more than 50 journals. He has co-authored or edited eight books, including Memory Loss, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Dementia: A Practical Guide for Clinicians (translated into Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese), Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory (translated into Korean and Simplified Chinese), Six Steps to Managing Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia: A Guide for Families, and Why We Forget and How to Remember Better: The Science Behind Memory. He was awarded the Norman Geschwind Prize in Behavioral Neurology in 2008 and the Research Award in Geriatric Neurology in 2009, both from the American Academy of Neurology. His current research uses the techniques of experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience to understand memory in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. In his memory disorders clinic at the VA Boston Healthcare System he treats patients while teaching fellows, residents, and medical students.
