About me

  • Giulia Grande is a specialized neurologist who completed her medical degree and residency at the University of Milan, Italy.
    In 2020, she obtained her Ph.D. in geriatric epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet, focusing on the connection between the body and mind in the development of dementia among older adults.

Research

  • Giulia Grande's primary research interests encompass:
    - Somatic Contribution to Dementia Onset: Investigating the impact of various chronic conditions on accelerating cognitive decline and the development of dementia.
    - Blood-Based Biomarkers of Alzheimer's Disease: Exploring the role of blood-based biomarkers in predicting dementia within a population setting.
    - Biological Mechanisms of Air Pollution and Dementia: Studying the biological mechanisms that link long-term exposure to air pollution with dementia.
    Additionally, Giulia has received a grant as principal investigator from the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life, and Welfare (FORTE) project with the aim to explore intergenerational differences in cognitive trajectories among Swedish older adults.
