Comet Corner Series: Aging and Psychosis

Wednesday, November 17, 12:00 PM  – 1:00 PM CST

WATCH LIVE from any browser on November 17 at 12PM: 

Contributions of aging to complex brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease or psychotic disorders (e.g., Schizophrenia) are influenced by a myriad of factors and are difficult to predict. In this Comet Corner session, Dr. Kristen Kennedy, associate professor in Behavioral and Brain Sciences and Center for Vital Longevity, will elaborate on her research around the health and lifestyle modifiers of brain aging and their cognitive consequences. Joining her is Dr. Elena I. Ivleva, Director of the Early Psychosis Research and Clinical Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center, whose research and clinical practice focuses on untangling the effects of aging in psychotic disorders in hopes of finding novel interventions and improved disease outcomes.

The Comet Corner Series, created by the UT Dallas Office of Research and in partnership with the schools across our campus, hosts monthly chats with some of our notable alumni to hear how they have taken their research out into the world and made #UTDResearchImpact.
