William C. Mobley, M.D., Ph.D.is Professor
and Chair of the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford
University . After completing
undergraduate training in chemistry and zoology at the University
of Nebraska at Lincoln
, Mobley received the medical degree and doctorate in neuroscience
from Stanford University
. He trained in pathology and pediatrics at the Stanford
and completed a residency and fellowship in neurology at Johns
Hospital , where he also was chief
resident in pediatric neurology. In 1985, he joined the faculty of the University
of California , San Francisco School
of Medicine where he rose to the rank of professor of neurology, pediatrics and
the neuroscience program and served as the director of child neurology. In
1991, he was named Derek Denny Brown Scholar of the American Neurological
Association. Since 1997 he has been the Chair of the Department of Neurology
and Neurological Sciences at Stanford
University and holds the John E.
Cahill Family Endowed Chair. He also serves as co-Director of the Stanford
Brain Research Institute. His laboratory studies the signaling biology of
neurotrophic factors in the normal brain and in animal models of
neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Down syndrome. He
is the recipient of both the Zenith Award and the Temple
Award from the Alzheimer's
Association and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. Mobley serves
as Editor of the Neurobiology of Disease, as a member of the American
Society for Experimental Neurotherapeutics, was former president of the
Association of University Professors of Neurology and president-elect of The
Professors of Child Neurology.
