Biography & Research:
Dr Chi Udeh-Momoh is a Neuroscientist with affiliations at Imperial College London, UK and University of Bristol, UK. She is co-Investigator and Programme Manager of a large-scale dementia-prevention preclinical cohort study (The Chariot:PRO study) that will follow-up an estimated 1,200 pre-symptomatic-for–AD individuals (up to 4 years), with extensive fluid and imaging biomarkers, neurocognitive and functional explorations.
Having completed a competitive CASE PhD studentship in Neuroscience and Neuroendocrinology at the Translational Brain Sciences department and MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity at the University of Bristol, her current research focuses on the brain-immune-endocrine system interplay in the aetiology and pathophysiology of neurocognitive disorders, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. She uses translational research methodologies to address gaps in current understanding of underlying factors involved in manifestation of pathology and resultant presentation of clinical symptoms, primarily in the context of brain and cognitive reserve-related mechanisms.
