UHN Office of Research Trainees

In this episode, Dr. Emily Mills chats with Dr. Patcharaporn (Nok) Srisaikaew, a post-doctoral researcher in Dr. Mojgan Hodaie’s lab at the Krembil Brain Institute.

Nok completed her PhD specializing in human body dissections and the use of MRI to search for biomarkers of mild cognitive impairment. Nok’s post-doctoral research at UHN aims to elucidate the underlying neural mechanisms of limbic system (involving cognitive, memory and emotional systems) alterations in individuals with trigeminal neuralgia, a distressing facial pain condition.

Tune in to hear how she used her research expertise to help her own father who showed early signs of mild cognitive impairment.
