Virginie Lam is an NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow with preclinical and clinical expertise investigating the role of micro-nutrients in regulating brain capillaries and cognitive performance. Virginie completed her PhD in 2016 and currently possesses authorship to 32 publications. Her recent studies demonstrated for the first time that elevated levels of some micro-nutrients may paradoxically be as detrimental to brain capillaries and memory as are deficiencies, with a substantive interest in vitamin D and brain function. Virginie's current line of research is dedicated to considering the interactive effects of vasoactive nutrients with lifestyle and pharmacological interventions that can restore vascular damage to improve cognitive health and halt the onset and progression of vascular-based neurodegenerative diseases.
