Dr. Willoughby is Assistant Professor of Research in the Departments of Internal Medicine in the School of Medicine at Saint Louis University. She earned her Ph.D. from Saint Louis University in 2002, specializing in Experimental Psychology with an emphasis in aging and cognition.

She completed postdoctoral training at the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research in the Geriatric Psychiatry Research program, where she studied the adverse cognitive effects of pharmaceutical agents in healthy older adults, received advanced training with psychological research using MRI technology, and helped to initiate the Memory and Education Research Initiative (MERI) program, which provided free memory evaluations to Rockland County, New York citizens and served as an epidemiological research tool to address the growing need of county-wide services for cognitively impaired older adults.

Her current research interests are broad and include examination of risks associated with developing dementia, polypharmacy among patients with dementia, normal and abnormal cognitive changes in older adults, and aging and end-stage renal disease.
