Professor Benveniste is an expert in MRI imaging in rodent models of neurodegenerative disorders. Her techniques have been tailored to allow the study of glymphatic fluid flow, work that has been key to developing our understanding of this pathway. After joining Yale University in 2016, her work now focuses on how this fluid transport system is affected in both ageing and neurodegeneration, with a particular focus on small vessel disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
