Amanpreet Badhwar is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal, and continue to work on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related dementias. My research combines structural and functional imaging with clinical and genetic assessments to relate variations in brain connectivity to clinical status, and to develop early markers of AD pathology. Late-onset, sporadic AD is a complex and heterogeneous disorder with a number of underlying pathologies contributing to symptoms. However, AD has generally been studied in silos, with individual laboratories focusing on specific aspects of the pathology. Holistic, multimodal approaches that are sensitive to the multiple dementing pathologies as well as the concurrent mechanisms of brain aging are needed to understand AD. I hope to make distinct contributions to the study of AD by applying “big data” methods to integrate observations from multi-modal, large-scale datasets such as in-vivo brain imaging and ‘omics’ (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics).

In Dialogue with Art and Science

“Science and art both seek to observe, record and explain the world around us, just using different means. Both have their theoretical frameworks, evolving techniques, and schools of thought. Above all, both scientists and artists need to be creative and insightful in order to make meaningful contributions to their respective fields.”

Amanpreet Badhwar is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre de Recherche de l’Institut Universitaire de Gériatrie de Montréal (CRIUGM), Université de Montréal , where she works on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and related dementias. Her research combines structural and functional imaging with clinical and genetic assessments to relate variations in brain connectivity to clinical status, and to develop early markers of AD pathology. She is also an artist. In this exclusive interview she discusses her relationship between art and science.
