    • Dr. Krikorian, PhD

         Robert Krikorian is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience and Director of the Cognitive Aging Program at the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center. He earned his BA and MA degrees in Philosophy from Boston University, MA and PhD degrees in Clinical Psychology from the University of Cincinnati and completed a fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology in the departments of neurology and neurosurgery.

         His chief interest is the influence of health conditions on cognitive decline with aging and risk for Alzheimer’s disease. He directs a clinical program within the Department of Psychiatry that provides neurocognitive diagnostic services and lifestyle coaching and a research program investigating nutritional interventions to forestall cognitive aging and progression of neurodegeneration. His current research involves investigations of the effects of berry fruit supplementation and nutritional ketosis on cognitive function and metabolism in middle-aged individuals with increased risk for late-life dementia. Funding for his research has come from the NIH, from philanthropy, and from foundation and industry sources. 

     Dr. Summer, PhD, RD

         Suzanne earned her bachelor’s degree in dietetics from the University of Cincinnati in 2001 and completed a research-focused dietetic internship at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda Maryland in 2002.  After the internship she started her research dietitian career as a study coordinator at UC and then moved to Cincinnati Children’s to oversee the Bionutrition Core of their clinical research center, a position she still holds today. Suzanne and her team provide nutrition research services to investigators at Children’s, UC, and other academic institutions, including dietary intake analysis, body composition assessment, and metabolic rate measurement. Among these is a decade-long collaboration with tonight’s speaker, Robert Krikorian, contributing to his important work investigating the role of nutrition and other lifestyle factors in the development and prevention of cognitive decline in middle- to older-aged adults. In 2007 Suzanne completed her Master’s degree in Epidemiology and in 2020, obtained her PhD in Epidemiology.  That year she also received the UC College of Rehabilitation, Exercise, and Nutrition Sciences distinguished alumnus award, and has served on the board of GCDA in different roles since 2015.
