The mission of the BU Molecular Aging and Development Laboratory (MADLab) is to discover disease mechanisms and develop new diagnostics and treatments for neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Brain Trauma. MADLab is a multidisciplinary biomedical research laboratory based at the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, College of Engineering, and Photonics Centers. MADLab is closely affiliated with the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center, Center for Biometals & Metallomics (CBM), and collaborating laboratories across the nation and around the world.

MADLab is led by Dr. Lee E. Goldstein, MD, PhD. Dr. Goldstein received his medical and doctoral training at Yale University and completed an internal medicine internship and residency program in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. Dr. Goldstein’s work is focused on understanding the role of abnormal protein aggregation in chronic degenerative disorders of aging. Dr. Goldstein also leads the molecular research team at the BU Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Center. Please click here for more information about Dr. Goldstein’s work.
