Pinchas Cohen, dean of the USC Davis School, announced this week that longtime researcher Christian Pike, Ph.D., was promoted from associate to full professor.

A biogerontologist with a joint appointment in neuroscience, Pike focuses his research on Alzheimer’s disease, specifically the role sex steroid hormones play. Pike has made national headlines for his research into the effects of testosterone and estrogen during the aging process.

“Christian Pike’s visionary research is an invaluable resource not just for our School and his colleagues, but also for all aging people,” said Cohen. “We are lucky to have him and proud of the groundbreaking work he has done and will continue to do here.”
