KRISTIAN STEEN FREDERIKSEN – PHYSICAL EXERCISE AND CLINICAL APPLICATION OF AD BIOMARKERS
MD, PhD. Main research areas are physical exercise in neurodegenerative dementias with regard to treatment and primary prevention. A second area of interest is the application of biomarkers of AD and other neurodegenerative diseases in the clinic, with a special focus on brain imaging techniques.
CHRISTINA JENSEN-DAHM – EPIDEMIOLOGY AND REGISTER-BASED RESEARCH

LISE CRONBERG SALEM – DEMENTIA IN PEOPLE WITH DOWN SYNDROME MD, PhD.
