Early Detection and Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias
Lindsay Clark, PhD, is a clinical neuropsychologist with an interdisciplinary research program that aims to improve early detection and prognosis of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD).
Dr. Clarks's research program focuses on three areas:
- Identifying and characterizing early cognitive decline associated with neuroimaging and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers of ADRD
- Quantifying the risks and benefits of early detection of ADRD and developing effective strategies to disclose Alzheimer’s disease risk-related information, such as amyloid PET scan results, to adults at risk.
- Validating digital tools and tele-neuropsychology approaches to improve early detection of clinical symptoms of ADRD and expand access to dementia evaluations
