Peg Nopoulos, M.D. is Professor of Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Neurology. She is the DEO and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City, Iowa. Dr Nopoulos is a physician-scientist. Her clinical care consists of taking care of patients with Huntington’s Disease in Iowa’s HD Center of Excellence where she has worked for the past 15 years. Dr. Nopoulos’ research focuses on the study of brain and behavior. This is done using state of the art neuroimaging techniques, specifically Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Dr. Nopoulos is interested in aspects of understanding normal healthy brain such as differences in brain structure and function between the sexes as well as understanding how the brain changes with development through adolescence. In regard to HD, she is interested in studying the effects of the Huntington’s gene on brain development and is director of the Kids-HD and Kids-JHD program. The Kids-HD program evaluates brain structure and function in children at risk for HD and the Kids-JHD program is the first ever neuroimaging study of JHD subjects.
