Anna Marseglia is a Ph.D. in medical science, focus on epidemiology and cognitive aging, at Karolinska Institutet (KI) since May 2018. Before, she received a master degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Padua (2009) where she trained as neuropsychologist. Anna has collaborated with the Italian National Research Council–Institute of Neuroscience, Aging Branch in Padua on several research projects in the field of diabetes-related complications and cognitive function, diet and cognition, quality of life in patients with knee surgery (2010-ongoing). During the Ph.D, Anna was student representative and later chair (2015-2018) of the NVS PhD student Council. Since fall 2018, she is vice-chair for Professional Development at KI Postdoc association. Anna is also a licensed psychologist since 2011, with clinical training in neuropsychology in the Department of Neuroscience–Neurology I Operative Unit.

Anna’s research interests are:

1) The impact of cardiometabolic conditions on different phases of cognitive aging, the potential underlying mechanisms and compensating lifestyle mechanisms. Specifically, Anna aims to understand whether and to what extent hyperglycemia, cardio- and cerebrovascular diseases, brain atrophy, vascular brain lesions, active lifestyle, and cognitive resreve can modulate the effects of prediabetes and diabetes on cognitive aging. In her previous and current projects, she uses longitudinal data from three population-based observational studies: the Swedish National study on Aging and Care-Kungsholmen (SNAC-K), SNAC-K magnetic resonance imaging study (SNAC-K MRI), and the Swedish Adoption/Twin Study of Aging (SATSA).

2) The impact of nutrition and cognitive aging. This project is in collaboration with the EU-funded NU-AGE project, the first multicenter randomized controlled trial assessing the impact of a culturally adapted, individually tailored, whole Mediterrenean-like diet on age-related conditions such as cognitive and functional decline.
