Lindsey O. Lowder was born and raised in Columbia, SC where she attended the University of South Carolina and earned a B.S. in Biological Sciences (Go gamecocks!). She then attended the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic medicine where she received her medical degree. Lindsey moved to Cincinnati, OH to complete a 4-year residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, and finally, completed a 2-year fellowship at Emory University in Neuropathology prior to joining Peachtree-Piedmont Pathology. Lindsey is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology as well as Neuropathology.
Lindsey has had a long standing interest in research, with 8+ years of laboratory experience. Areas of research have included: the formation of advanced glycation end products in diabetes, dopamine receptors in breast cancer, molecular pathways involved in the genesis of focal cortical dysplasia, cryptococcal meningitis, microarray analysis of gliosarcoma, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia. Her main interests are centered in neurodegenerative disease. She was awarded the Asao Hirano Award for her research work with Dr. Jonathan Glass and Marla Gearing (Emory ALS Center) concerning the role of the cognitive cerebellum in the development of dementia in ALS. Other expertise include brain tumors, neuromuscular disease and CNS autopsy pathology. She has particular interest in post-mortem brain pathology. Lindsey is active in the neuropathology community, recently holding a junior position on the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Neuropathology Committee.
Her primary goal at Piedmont is to facilitate advanced patient care, working closely with Drs. Erin Dunbar and David J. McCracken at the Piedmont Brain Health Center to diagnose and determine personalized treatment options for those suffering from CNS tumors.
During her free time, Lindsey enjoys spending time with her husband, Jonathan, as well as friends and family. She also enjoys running, and is ambitiously training for the Triple Peach race series.
