Suzanne de la Monte MD, MPH

Suzanne de la Monte, MD MPH is a Professor of Pathology, Neurology, and Neurosurgery at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University with appointments at the Rhode Island Hospital and Women & Infants Hospital. Her A.B. was from Cornell University, MD from the Weill Medical College of Cornell, and MPH from the Blumberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins. Her residency training in Anatomical and Pediatric Pathology was from Hopkins and Neuropathology fellowship was from Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. de la Monte launched her career as a physician-scientist while on the faculty at MGH and Harvard Medical School. In 2000, she joined the faculty at Brown, where she conducts basic, translational, and clinical research on mechanisms and consequences of brain insulin resistance and metabolic dysfunction, leading her to coin the term ‘Type 3 Diabetes’ to reflect the main underlying problems in Alzheimer’s and other dementing neurodegenerative diseases. Her lab actively investigates how lifestyles and unintended exposures cause neurodegeneration due to brain insulin resistance, oxidative stress, and metabolic dysfunction. These efforts dovetail with assessments of novel approaches for therapeutic intervention. Beyond her academic research activities, Dr. de la Monte is an educator and mentor to junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate, medical, college, and high school students, a practicing pathologist and neuropathologist, medical-legal consultant, medical scientific writer and editor, and reviewer of scientific research proposals. In her spare time, Dr. de la Monte embraces extra-curricular interests, including golf, spinning, weight training, theater, music, history of religion, and Paleo cooking.
