Dr. Cameron McAlpine is an assistant professor in the Cardiovascular Research Institute and the departments of Medicine and Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. McAlpine joined Mount Sinai and opened his independent lab in June 2021 after completing a postdoc at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston under the supervision of Dr. Filip Swirski. Dr. McAlpine’s research has focused on uncovering the biological pathways that connect sleep to immune function and Alzheimer’s disease. His laboratory uses multidisciplinary approaches to explore long-rage interorgan communication and leukocyte function to better understand how behavioral and lifestyle factors influence the immune system and chronic age-related neurodegenerative diseases.
