Tartaglia is an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto. She received her medical degree from McGill University, completed her residency at the University of Western Ontario and did three years of clinical/research fellowship in Cognitive/Behavioral neurology at the University of California, San Francisco Memory and Aging Center. She maintains a cognitive/behavioral clinic within the UHN Memory Clinic. Her clinical and research interests lie in neurodegenerative diseases with a focus on Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD).
The focus of her work is searching for biomarkers for early molecular diagnosis of all syndromes caused by Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). She has contributed to the validation of new clinical criteria for behavioral variant Frontotemporal Dementia. Using modern imaging methods such as Diffusion tensor imaging she has contributed to the understanding that loss of white matter integrity contributes to the behavioral and cognitive deficits in the different FTLD syndromes. She is investigating different protein biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid for the diagnosis of the various neurodegenerative diseases.

The ultimate goal of her research program is to provide early, pathology-specific treatments to her patients. An emerging interest of Dr. Tartaglia is the role of head trauma (concussion) in dementia, both in athletes and in members of the general population.
