Elijah Mak has won the Silver prize Rising Star award at the International Lewy Body Dementia Conference
Elijah is a post-doctoral researcher investigating the interplay between distinct pathological processes (e.g. amyloid burden and cortical thinning) and how they map onto clinical impairment in Down’s Syndrome.
Specifically, in the use of multivariate approaches to delineate the spatially-distributed relationships between components of amyloid burden and patterns of grey matter atrophy.
In addition, he uses network mapping techniques and graph theory to investigate the extent to which the connectional architecture of structural networks predicts the topography of amyloid deposition in Down’s syndrome.

At the same event Peter Swann won the best poster award for his poster entitled:
Neuroinflammation in medial temporal regions and peripheral cytokine profile predict cognitive decline in Dementia with Lewy bodies
