Kathryn Murphy


Kathryn Murphy's research is motivated by the need for better treatments for neurological diseases. The brain changes as we age, and treatments that work for a young person are not always effective for older adults. Murphy's studies focus on developing a better understanding of neurobiological changes in aging, especially ones that are different for women and men. ​​Murphy's research uses genomic and proteomic techniques and modern computational tools to chart the trajectory of changes in female and male brains across the lifespan.
