Elizabeth Dao

Dr. Elizabeth Dao completed her PhD at the University of British Columbia, under the supervision of Dr. Teresa Liu-Ambrose. With the MSFHR Trainee Award, Dr. Dao will complete her postdoctoral training at ICORD (International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries), with Dr. Cornelia Laule. Her postdoctoral research will implement advanced neuroimaging techniques to better understand the primary pathological changes in cerebral small vessel disease. Improved characterization of these pathological changes and how they affect cognitive and physical function will lead to more informed development of targeted therapies for people with cognitive impairment and dementia.
