Personal Statement

Currently, I am a Research Coordinator at Rutgers University-Newark at the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience. My research interests include cognitive function, public health, and health disparities. My principal area of interest is the use of non-pharmacological interventions, such as exercise, to improve cognition and everyday function in older adults, especially those within racial/ethnic minority groups. Another interest of mine is to understand the impact social determinants of health, genetics, and neural markers have on preclinical Alzheimer's disease.

Current Role

Personal Statement

Dr. Joshua Keller is currently applying his previous experiences and training of measuring vascular function and developing experiments focused on resistance training outcome variables to the application of discovering efficacious interventions capable of delaying, or perhaps even preventing, the onset of neurogenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease, especially in midlife, minority populations. He is addressing this ambitious aim with a high-impact, multidisciplinary team of experts across his university system, which is located in the Gulf Coast Region and is composed of richly diverse community members who are in dire need of interventions related to preventing ADRD through improvement of various health disparities such as vascular function.
