Nicola Filippini

DPhil (Oxon)

Post Doctoral Research Fellow

I am a postdoctoral researcher (The HDH Wills 1965 Charitable Trust) in the Department of Psychiatry and FMRIB Centre at the University of Oxford. I finished my DPhil program in 2010 with a thesis entitled “Brain structure, function and connectivity associated with APOE genotype: what changes when?” My main interests are Alzheimer’s disease and genetic risk factors that I explore using a wide range of neuroimaging techniques, in particular, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and structural MRI (sMRI) and arterial spin labelling (ASL). I am currently involved in a series of projects that aim: 1) to define the effect of APOE on the brain; 2) to identify the biological meaning of resting state networks; 3) to define MRI markers for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
