Dan Mungas, PhD is a Professor of Neurology at UC Davis. He has been at UC Davis since 1981 and has been associated with the UC Davis CADC program since it began in 1986. Dr. Mungas has longstanding experience and expertise in clinical care related to cognitive changes of aging, and diseases that cause cognitive decline. His clinical background in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is complemented by a research program that both derives from clinical experience and contributes findings to guide clinical care. Dr. Mungas is particularly interested in measuring cognitive change in demographically and linguistically diverse older persons and understanding the factors that influence cognitive decline. Much of his research involves ethnically diverse participant samples, with particular emphasis on Hispanics, African Americans, and Caucasians.
