AGEING BRAINS: UNDERSTANDING AND REDUCING RISKS OF DEMENTIA
Thursday 27 April 2023
As part of the University’s major campaign into brain and mental health research, join us ONLINE for an exploration into the brain and the risk factors associated with dementia and neurodegenerative diseases. Listen to experts from the University on how they come to their conclusions, whose brains are at risk, and what can be done.https://www.youtube.com/embed/v4rhF_796fo
Meet the panel
CHAIR: Sana Suri
Sana is an Associate Professor at the Department of Psychiatry. Her team study risk and resilience for cognitive decline in aging using multi-modal neuroimaging. Their research investigates how the brain's vascular health changes with age and explores the impact of genetic and cardiovascular risk factors on dementia.
Sarah is a cognitive neuropsychologist and epidemiologist, skilled in managing scientific research across multiple interdisciplinary projects. With over 3.6 million participants, Sarah serves as Senior Data Manager for Dementias Platform UK, leading their training program for analysts, overseeing data curation, and serving as a scientific reviewer for the DPUK Data Portal.
Raihaan is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Psychiatry. His research aims to understand how the co-occurrence of multiple chronic health conditions, termed multimorbidity, impacts neuroanatomy, cognitive decline, and dementia risk.
