KEYNOTE: Lisa Mosconi (US), Neuroscientist & Author of Brain Food

Food,

In 2018 Lisa published Brain Food: the Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power (Avery / Penguin Random House). The book has emerged from Dr. Mosconi’s many years of research and interactions with people at risk for Alzheimer’s disease. At Techfestival she’s gonna present her research under the title “If you could see the future, what would you have for dinner”.

Dr. Lisa Mosconi, PhD, is the Associate Director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC)/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, where she was recruited as an Associate Professor of Neuroscience in Neurology. As a world-renowned clinical neuroscientist and neuro-nutritionist with over 15 years of experience in the early detection and risk assessment of Alzheimer’s, Dr. Mosconi brings a unique and authoritative perspective to this nascent field. By integrating rigorous scientific knowledge of neuroscience, neurology, biology, genetics, brain imaging, nutrition and preventive medicine, Brain Food sets out to change the way we eat as an essential aspect of healthcare for our wellbeing, our brain first and foremost.
