The research of Kejal Kantarci, M.D., is in the field of neuroimaging in aging and dementia. Advances in imaging technology over the last few decades have given us the tools to track the normal and pathologic aging of the brain. Dr. Kantarci's research aims to bring these advanced imaging modalities into clinical practice. The goal of Dr. Kantarci's research program is to apply advanced imaging technology in order to detect the evolution of dementia pathologies before they cause irreversible damage to the brain. She aims to develop valid imaging tools to detect the earliest dementia-related changes in the brain, which could allow for early intervention and prevention of dementia. Dr. Kantarci's research program has been funded since 2003 by the National Institutes of Health, Alzheimer's Association and American Federation for Aging Research.
