Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Chen Zhao's primary research interest is the influence of lifestyle factors on dementia risk. No disease-modifying treatment for dementia exists currently, and primary prevention remains an elusive goal.

Specifically, Dr. Zhao's research goals are to identify lifestyle risk factors for dementia (e.g., diet, sleep, exercise, cognitive activities, early life exposures) using a life course epidemiology approach, and furthermore, to examine how these lifestyle risk factors interact together to moderate overall dementia risk. 

Teaching and educational interests

Dr. Chen Zhao is the supervisor of the cognitive neurology rotation for neurology residents at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and is actively involved in education of residents and medical students. She also has educational interests in neuroepidemiology.
