My research focuses on developing novel biomarkers and interventional strategies for mild cognitive impairment and dementia. My lab uses a combination of fluid biomarkers, neuroimaging and neurocognitive panels in investigating Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia and other related neurodegenerative diseases.
