Associate Professor, ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center
Edson Endowed Professor in Dementia Research

Salvatore Oddo received his undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Catania, Italy, and his graduate degree in Neurobiology of Learning and Memory from the University of California, Irvine. His research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying memory deficits in Alzheimer?s disease. Using animal models, he showed that dysfunction signaling transduction pathways that are critical for learning and memory play a pivotal role in the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer?s disease.

Professor Oddo has published more than 70 research articles in international peer-reviewed journals and is a member of the ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center. In recognition of his contribution to the aging and Alzheimer?s disease fields, he has been the recipient of several national and international awards.
