Dr. Valentina Perosa’s main interest is to explore how cerebral small vessel disease contributes to cognitive impairment. After completing medical school at the University of Magdeburg, she began training as a neurologist and focused her research on ageing and neurodegenerative disease. As a postdoc, Dr. Perosa currently investigates enlarged perivascular spaces in patients with CAA, combining post-mortem MRI and histopathology. With this work, the Van Veluw Lab for Neuroimaging aims to gain more insight in the clearance mechanisms of amyloid ß in CAA, which could have repercussions in better understanding the interactions between vascular and Alzheimer’s pathology.
