Donald Price, M.D.

ADRC Director Emeritus

Donald L. Price, M.D., is Professor of Pathology, Neurology, and Neuroscience at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He has focused on the study of neurodegenerative diseases; the development and analysis of animal models — especially genetically engineered models of these disorders — and the investigation of experimental therapeutic strategies that prepare the way for translation of basic science discoveries to treatments of humans with neurological illnesses.
