Tri-Valley: Aging and Alzheimer's Disease: Can lifestyle practices protect the brain?

Dr. Susan Ladau, Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute

Cal Alumni Association, Tri-Valley Cal Alumni Club

About this Event
Join us for an evening with Dr. Susan Landau to learn how lifestyle changes may influence the brain later in life and how they may reduce the risk of cognitive decline.

Susan is an Associate Research Scientist at the UC Berkeley Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute. Her work focuses on the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States: Alzheimer's.

Earlier this year Susan and her colleagues were awarded a $47 million grant from the National Institute on Aging that will fund the acquisition of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment. This equipment will be used to study participants in the U.S. POINTER trial. According to a press release from the University, "The expanded study will be the first large-scale investigation of how lifestyle interventions, which include exercise, diet, cognitive stimulation and health coaching, affect well-known biological markers of Alzheimer’s and dementia in the brain."

We invite all Cal Alumni to join us and encourage inviting any friends or family who may be interested in Susan's research.
