Dr. Alvarez completed his undergraduate degree at Boston College and earned his MD from St. George’s University. He completed residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, fellowship training in Oncologic Surgical Pathology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, General Surgical Pathology at Danbury Hospital, and Neuropathology fellowship training at Brown University. Dr. Alvarez is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Boston University and manages laboratory operations at the Bedford VA Hospital and the Jamaica Plain Veterans Administration. He is a member of the New England Veterans Administration Medical Centers (VISN-1) Brain Banks and the Brain Banks for the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center, Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, and Framingham Heart Study.

Dr. Alvarez’s research interests center on the relationship between neurotrauma and neurodegenerative diseases. Much of his current work centers on standardizing brain banking protocols between the various centers.
