John E. Donahue received his M.D. from Tufts University in 1992. He trained in neurology at Tufts-New England Medical Center and in neuropathology at Rhode Island Hospital. After spending four years at the New Jersey Neuroscience Institute as Director of Neuropathology, he returned to RIH/Brown Medical School in 2003 to practice clinical neuropathology and pursue academic research in neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's disease) and the blood-brain barrier. Being both a neurologist and neuropathologist enables him to bring a clinical perspective to neuropathology material and an underlying pathologic understanding to clinical material. Translational research in neurodegenerative diseases is ideally-suited for a neurologist-neuropathologist like him. This is a very rare combination in the 21st century; most newly-trained neuropathologists are trained in general anatomic and surgical pathology, not neurology.
