Ph.D., 2006, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
The goal of the Lin Brain Lab is to develop precision health approaches to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.
Dr. Lin is an expert on translational neuroimaging of brain vascular and metabolic function in aging, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and traumatic brain injury. She developed and applied magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy and positron emission tomography to test nutritional and pharmacologic approaches for protecting the brain from aging, traumatic brain injury, and Alzheimer’s disease. She also has applied artificial intelligence to identify markers that are highly predictable for Alzheimer’s disease development and progression and applied gut microbiome analyses to study gut-brain interaction underlying Alzheimer’s disease.
