Om mig

  • Miguel G. Borda, MD, PhD, skillfully blends his medical know-how with
    research expertise.
    Borda took his medical studies and specialization in geriatric medicine at
    the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. His primary focus
    lies in dementia research, functional decline, sarcopenia, and frailty.
    With an in-depth understanding of the distinctive healthcare needs of older
    adults, his research endeavors are directed towards elevating the quality of
    life for aging individuals.
    He earned his PhD in medicine from the University of Stavanger and Stavanger
    University Hospital, with a thesis titled ''Clinical and Neuroimaging
    Prognostic Markers in Alzheimer's Disease and Lewy Body Dementia: The Role of
    Muscle Status and Nutrition.'' Guided by the overarching hypothesis that
    dementia transcends being solely a brain disorder, his work furnishes
    compelling evidence that dementia indeed assumes a systemic nature. The
    manifestations in other bodily parts or systems hold significant implications
    for the onset and prognosis of dementia. The thesis underscores the vital
    role played by nutritional and muscle status in the realm of dementia.

  • Borda´s research currently revolves around crafting personalized and
    preventive approaches for dementia. These approaches consider factors beyond
    the brain, including the muscular system, and encompass multidimensional
    interventions like exercise and nutrition.
