  • Vasiliki Ikonomidou

    Associate Professor, Bioengineering, Volgenau  

    Many neurological diseases are marked by a process of white matter neurodegeneration; that is, a breakdown of specific brain tissue involved in higher-order cognitive function. The global rise of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is of urgent focus, but better medical diagnostic systems also offer epilepsy and multiple sclerosis patients hope. Since August 2009 Vasiliki Ikonomidou’s research conducted at Mason’s Krasnow Institute for Advanced Studies has been focused on improving MRI technologies to detect this unique and difficult to measure symptom.
