Meet Dr. Rhoda Au, one of the panelists for our upcoming ADDI Researcher Roundtable: 'The Importance of Diversity in Dementia Research'

Dr. Au is a Professor at Boston University and Director of Neuropsychology for the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) and Director of the Global Cohort Development Program for the Davos Alzheimer’s Collaborative. Her work includes cognitive aging and dementia, with a focus on using technologies to develop a customizable, multi-sensory brain health monitoring platform. Her strategic research plan is to transition from reliance on active engagement technologies to low/no engagement ones. She actively supports broad data sharing/accessibility initiatives to accelerate data science/Artificial Intelligence -driven discovery of digital biomarkers, including those that can serve as surrogate indices of fluid and imaging biomarkers and novel disease pathways and treatment solutions.
