Research focus
Examine the links between (sub)cortical microvascular lesions, cerebral microvascular function on 7T MR and cognition in patients with SVDs.

Current projects
At the moment Laurien Onkenhout coordinates the TREAT@SVDs study, a part of the SVD@target collaboration, multicenter and multidisciplinary study with the ambition to identify key mechanisms common to multiple SVDs and to validate novel mechanisms through interventions, with the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of SVDs, stroke and dementia. Her research aims to better understand the relation between structural brain damage, cerebral microvascular function on 7T MR and cognition in patients with SVDs and cognitive dysfunction. She is also involved in the CVON Heart-Brain study, a SVD@Target project.
