Biography

George Perry is dean of the College of Sciences and the Semmes Foundation Distinguished University Chair in Neurobiology at The University of Texas at San Antonio. Dr. Perry is recognized in the field of Alzheimer’s disease research particularly for his work on oxidative metabolism. Dr. Perry is distinguished as one of the top Alzheimer’s disease researchers with over 1,000 publications, and one of the top 100 most-cited scientists in neuroscience and behavior (Over 68,000 citations, H=131), as well as the Expertscape Leading Expert in Alzheimer’s disease. Perry serves as editor for numerous journals and is editor-in-chief for the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, Texas Academy of Sciences, and Microscopy Society of America, a Fulbright Senior Specialist, as well as a member of the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives. Perry is also recognized internationally: he is a Foreign Member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences, the Academy of Science Lisbon, and the Mexican National Academy of Sciences. He is also a recipient of the National Plaque of Honor from the Republic of Panama Ministry of Science and Technology

Research Interest

Dr. Perry’s studies are focused on the mechanism of formation and physiological consequences of the cytopathology of Alzheimer disease. The lab has shown that oxidative damage is the initial cytopathology in Alzheimer disease. They are working to determine the sequence of events leading to neuronal oxidative damage and the source of the increased oxygen radicals. Current studies focus on the: mechanism for RNA-based redox metal binding consequences of RNA oxidation on protein synthesis rate and fidelity role of redox active metals in mediating prooxidant and antioxidant properties signal transduction pathways altered in Alzheimer disease that allow neurons to evade apoptosis mechanism of phosphorylation control of oxidative damage to neurofilament proteins
