Dementia in Type 2 Diabetes studying causal mechanisms
Alzheimer's disease & other dementias
dementia | diabetes mellitus | neurodegeneration | alzheimer disease | ageing
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) is an important risk factor for dementia, and knowledge regarding the biological pathways linking the two disorders can provide great insight into the causes of dementia overall. I plan to study the links between T2D and dementia using analytical modelling to tease out causal pathways. My overall vision is to establish a sound knowledge base upon which effective interventions can be devised to prevent or delay dementia, using T2D-related dementia as a model.
