Thor Stein, MD, PhD
Associate Professor
Boston University School of Medicine
Pathology & Laboratory Medicine

MD, University of Wisconsin Madison
PhD, University of Wisconsin Madison




Dr. Stein completed his undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Wisconsin- Madison where he earned his MD and PhD (neuroscience) degrees. He completed residency training in pathology and fellowship training in neuropathology at Massachusetts General Hospital. In 2011 he became Assistant Professor of Pathology at Boston University School of Medicine.

Research Interests:
Dr. Stein’s research interests involve the study of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). He studies the role of trauma in the abnormal accumulation of tau and proteins involved in RNA processing. He is an acting neuropathologist involved with the brain banks for the Boston University Alzheimer Disease Center, CTE Center, Framingham Heart Study, as well as the National Veterans Administration ALS brain bank.

CTE Center Role:
Dr. Stein is part of the Neuropathology Core of the SLI-BU CTE Brain Bank, where he conducts neuropathological analysis of brain tissue and helps maintain the SLI-BU CTE Brain Bank.

Awards/Memberships:
Dr. Stein is a recipient of the 2011 American Association of Neuropathologists Moore Award. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience and the College of American Pathologists.
