Omonigho (Michael) Bubu
Assistant Professor, Physician Scientist, NYU Grossman School of Medicine
Dr. Bubu is an Assistant Professor and physician scientist at NYU Grossman School of Medicine (NYUSoM), in the Departments of Psychiatry and Population Health, with a programmatic research focus on sleep, aging and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Dr. Bubu has graduate, internship, and fellowship-level clinical and research training in neurology, neuro-epidemiology and public health. His research examines how age-related and age-dependent sleep changes, and vascular risk, impact cognitive decline and AD risk, and how they drive AD related disparities. At NYUSoM, Dr. Bubu has continued to establish his emerging national presence as a sleep and AD investigator, and has been involved in various research projects that have established that sleep is associated with cognitive decline, and AD. He has collaborated with experts in the field on intramural, foundation and NIH grants, with significant contributions that have improved our understanding of the relationship between sleep, particularly, obstructive sleep apnea and AD. He served as an inaugural member of the Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) Advisory Board, Guest Associate Editor in Alzheimer's disease and Related Dementias Section, Frontiers Aging Neuroscience, and currently serves as the Section Editor for the Sleep and Health Disparities/Sleep and Epidemiology section in Current Sleep Medicine Reports. He is an ad-hoc reviewer for the NIH, Alzheimer’s Association, AASM, Sleep Research Society and APHA as well as multiple high impact journals.
