    Investigating Cardiovascular Risk Factors and Underlying Genetic Pathways on Brain Structure and Function

    2017 Research Resident Grant recipient Priya Rajagopalan, MBBS, MPH, will utilize a pulsed arterial spin labeling technique to investigate cerebral blood flow alterations associated with cortisol gene variants in subjects with mild cognitive impairment. Dr. Rajagopalan seeks to discover novel genetic contributions to cognitive decline, hemodynamic alterations and brain atrophy related to stress and cortisol with a strong translational potential to identify novel therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and enable enrichment for AD clinical trials.

    “I am very fortunate to belong to a department which values academic research and encourages me to pursue my research interests,” said Dr. Rajagopalan, a third-year radiology resident at Indiana University, Bloomington. “Having been selected for the academic track, I continue to work on research projects under the mentorship of Andrew J. Saykin, PsyD, the director of the Center for Neuroimaging and leader of the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative Genetics Core.”
