Research Interests:

Dr. Yabluchanskiy’s work is focused on the cardio- and microvascular complications of aging. His unique combination of expertise in neuroscience, cardiovascular pathophysiology and aging allowed him to initiate a research program focusing on the understudied and clinically important role of microvascular mechanisms in the development of vascular cognitive impairment. His laboratory utilizes a broad spectrum of techniques including methods to investigate cerebromicrovascular function, measure cerebral blood flow and characterize cognitive function in animal models of age-related diseases. Recently, Dr. Yabluchanskiy established a Translational Geroscience Laboratory, in which he is currently performing several clinical studies focused on the relationship between neurovascular mechanisms and cognitive impairment in aging and age-related diseases.
