Dan Felsky

Daniel Felsky received his PhD in Medical Science from the University of Toronto in 2015 using neuroimaging and genetics to study risk for Alzheimer’s disease. His ongoing research is focused on dissecting the complex genomic contributors to resilience in aging, specifically those factors that act to protect an aging brain from the damaging effects of chronic neuroinflammation and the accumulation of neuropathology. Daniel currently holds a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and was the recipient of the 2016 CIHR Institute of Aging Fellowship Prize of Excellence in Research on Aging. In his spare time, Dan likes to play piano and guitar, see live music, ride his bike, and walk in Central Park.
