As a researcher with expertise in radiology, Christopher G. Schwarz, Ph.D., focuses on developing and improving automated software for measuring aging and disease with brain imaging. His primary focus is on developing face de-identification, also called de-facing, software that helps prevent the potential re-identification of imaging data from research participants. Dr. Schwarz also develops improved software for automatically measuring brain structure and function in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He also conducts research on more accurately measuring disease progression from longitudinal amyloid and tau positron emission tomography (PET) scans.
Dr. Schwarz's research helps scientists more accurately and efficiently measure the effects of aging and disease on the brain. This work helps the field better understand the processes behind cognitive aging and dementia and to more efficiently conduct research studies and clinical trials of potential therapies. His research also helps protect the identity and privacy of medical research participants.
