Research focus
Diffusion-based brain network analysis in vascular cognitive impairment

Current projects
Yael Reijmer obtained her PhD in 2012 at the UMC Utrecht and is currently working as a postdoc in the VCI group of Prof Biessels. Her research focus is the application of diffusion tensor imaging MRI and network theory to examine brain connectivity in patients with small vessel disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Between 2013 and 2016 she worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. S.M. Greenberg at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, where she examined impairments in brain connectivity in patients with cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Her work integrates findings from diffusion tensor MRI with other structural MRI markers, functional MRI, and amyloid PET data in order to gain more insight into the mechanisms of VCI. She has been awarded personal fellowships from the American Heart Association, Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (ZonMw, Memorabel Program), and a Young Talent Fellowship from the UMC Utrecht.
