Research interests

Vascular dementia Alzheimer disease

About

My research interests have focussed on the pathological changes in brain blood vessels and how the alterations impact on brain health during old age. I have used brain autopsy materials and experimental rodent models to publish widely on these issues. I am currently involved in a translational research project related to regenerative therapy for stroke and a clinical trial using vasoactive drugs for mild cognitive impairment.
