Kaitlin Casaletto, PhD



Kaitlin is a neuropsychologist at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center passionate about understanding resilience to brain aging and neurodegeneration. She aims to deeply phenotype the behaviors and biology supporting successful aging outcomes in order to identify the most potent intervention points for dementia prevention. Her work has focused on applying novel molecular fluid biomarkers reflecting synaptic, glial, immune, and vascular functioning to highlight relevant neurobiological pathways related to resilient aging. One approach she has taken is to characterize lifestyle behaviors known to relate to brain health (e.g., exercise, cognitive activity, stress) and identify related neurobiology via linked biofluid markers. These works have also leveraged technology-based approaches (e.g., Fitbit) to quantify protective brain health behaviors.
