Dr Avinash Chandra


Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Room Number: Room 114, Wolfson Building


I completed my PhD in Clinical Neuroscience at King’s College London where my research focused on the intersection of genetics and in vivo biomarkers in MCI and AD. I am currently a postdoctoral research assistant at the Centre for Prevention, Detection and Diagnosis working on the automated brain image analysis for timely and equitable dementia diagnosis (ABATED) project.


Research Interests:

I am interested in the use of novel in vivo biomarkers and technology for the early diagnosis of MCI or dementia, in addition to the application of modifiable lifestyle changes as a preventative strategy for dementia.
