overview

Dr. Andrew Gerlach is a nuclear engineer by training, now applying his computational expertise to multimodal neuroimaging integration. His focus is on exploring the underlying neurobiology and treatment response of late-life depression and anxiety. In his free time, he enjoys just about anything that will take him and his family into wild spaces, especially rock climbing.
