Senior Researcher/ Biomarker and Programme Lead at Imperial College London, UK
Dr Chi Udeh-Momoh is a Neuroscientist based at Imperial College London. She is co-Investigator, scientific coordinator and Programme Manager of a large-scale, longitudinal dementia-prevention programme (The CHARIOT:PRO, studies) with > 2000 cognitively healthy older adults screened, and data on imaging and fluid biomarkers as well as neurocognitive and lifestyle factors collected at high throughput.
Having completed a competitive CASE PhD studentship in Neuroscience and Neuroendocrinology at the 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 bio-psychosocial factors involved in manifestation of pathology and resultant presentation of clinical symptoms, primarily in the context of brain and cognitive reserve-related mechanisms, and has published as lead, senior and corresponding author in this field.
