Additional Speaker Information
Over the course of Dr. Albert’s career, she has conducted several large longitudinal studies aimed at improving our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease, the most recent of which is focused on the earliest phases of Alzheimer’s disease. This work uses biomarkers based on imaging, cerebrospinal fluid, blood, and genetics to better understand the earliest phases of AD. In addition, she has a long- standing interest in the study of lifestyle factors that influence risk of cognitive decline as people get older.
Dr. Albert has authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications. She has received many awards for her contributions to AD research; most recently, the Henry Wisniewski Lifetime Achievement Award, given by the Alzheimer’s Association in 2019.
