Rhoda Au is Professor of Anatomy & Neurobiology, Neurology and Epidemiology at Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public. She also currently serves as Director of Neuropsychology at the Framingham Heart Study, where she has been involved in research related to cognitive aging and dementia since 1990. Most recently, she has been exploring the potential of cognitive digital biomarkers and how “big data” analytics can better inform our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease pathways and treatment. Beyond Framingham, Dr. Au is focused on building multi-sector ecosystems to enable solutions for chronic disease prevention generally and optimizing brain health specifically and to move the primary focus of health technologies from precision medicine to a broader emphasis on precision health.
