Dr. Sarah Banks is Associate Professor in Neurosciences and Psychiatry, and Director of the Neuropsychology Program of the UCSD Health Center for Brain Health and Memory Disorders. Her research focuses on Alzheimer’s disease, with specific interest in sex differences and how to modify risk. She co-leads three labs: The Human Memory Lab emphasizes neuroimaging and multimodal characterization of Alzheimer’s; The Women Inflammation and Tau Study dedicated to studying risk factors for Alzheimer’s in women (https://www.witsucsd.org); and the Healthy Actions and Lifestyles to Avoid Dementia (HALT-AD) study works to educate and empower participants on avoiding cognitive decline with aging through modifiable factors such as sleep, diet and exercise. Her clinical program helps with the diagnosis and care of patients with suspected memory conditions. She is also active in teaching and mentoring clinicians and researchers.
