Tasnime Akbaraly PHOTOI am currently a permanent Researcher at INSERM, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research localised in Montpellier (south of France). I am also honorary researcher at University College London and consultant for the Whitehall II team. Having originally studied biochemistry, I found my way to cognitive aging epidemiology. After obtaining a PhD on the impact of nutrients such as selenium and carotenoids on cognitive decline, I wished to learn more on nutritional epidemiology and had several postdoctoral experiences (MRC Human Nutrition Research, Cambridge, UK; Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, UCL, London, UK).
I am interested in the determinants of heterogeneity in aging. My current research consisted of
- Examining the impact of diet on cognitive, physical functioning and mental health using expertise in nutritional epidemiology and neuropsychology
- Examining the association between type II diabetes biomarkers, cholestrol metabolism and cognitive decline and mental health.
