Dr. Huber completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California Santa Cruz and earned a PhD degree in Biophysics at the University of California San Francisco. He earned his MD from the Harvard-MIT Health Science and Technology program. He completed residency training in Anatomic Pathology and fellowship training in Neuropathology at the University of Washington. Dr. Huber is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Boston University and is the director of the PTSD Brain Bank at the Jamaica Plain Veterans Administration. He is a member of the New England Veterans Administration Medical Centers (VISN-1) Brain Banks and the Brain Banks for the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center, Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy and Framingham Heart Study. Dr. Huber’s research interests center on the relationship between neurotrauma and neurodegenerative diseases, with a primary focus on the blood-brain barrier and neuroinflammation. Much of his current work centers on astrocytic injury in repetitive neurotrauma and the accumulation of tau pathology. He is an acting neuropathologist involved with the brain banks for the Boston University Alzheimer Disease Center, CTE Center, Framingham Heart Study, as well as the PTSD brain bank. Dr Huber is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the College of American Pathologists, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, and the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories.
