Sarah Janicki, M.D. is an Instructor in Neurology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (New York, NY), in the Departments of Psychiatry (Division of Geriatric Psychiatry) and Neurology (Division of Aging and Dementia), the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain, and the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center.

Dr. Janicki earned her A.B. in Health Policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Policy at Princeton University. She received her medical degree and master's degree in public health from Drexel University College of Medicine. She completed her internship at New York Downtown Hospital, and her residency in Adult Neurology at Yale-New Haven Medical Center. She completed her clinical fellowship in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry at the G.H. Sergievsky Center and Taub Institute at Columbia University Medical Center, and joined the Columbia University faculty in 2010.

Dr. Janicki's research focuses on patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related memory disorders. Her work examines how genetic variations may influence exposure to estrogen and other hormones over the lifetime, which in turn may affect onset or progression of AD or cognitive impairment. She also uses neuroimaging outcomes in older people to explore the neuroanatomic correlates of hormone exposure in aging. She is the recipient of an NIH T32 Award for Research Training in Geriatric Psychiatry, and participates as a co-investigator in numerous ongoing clinical trials in AD and memory disorders through the G.H. Sergievsky Center and the Taub Institute. She sees patients in the Lucy G. Moses Center for Memory and Behavioral Disorders of the Neurological Institute, the Memory Disorders Center of the New York State Psychiatric Institute, and the Columbia University Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) Center of Excellence.
