Miguel G. Borda, MD, PhD, skillfully blends his medical know-how with research expertise.
Borda took his medical studies and specialization in geriatric medicine at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. His primary focus lies in dementia research, functional decline, sarcopenia, and frailty.
With an in-depth understanding of the distinctive healthcare needs of older adults, his research endeavors are directed towards elevating the quality of life for aging individuals.
He earned his PhD in medicine from the University of Stavanger and Stavanger University Hospital, with a thesis titled ''Clinical and Neuroimaging Prognostic Markers in Alzheimer's Disease and Lewy Body Dementia: The Role of Muscle Status and Nutrition.'' Guided by the overarching hypothesis that dementia transcends being solely a brain disorder, his work furnishes compelling evidence that dementia indeed assumes a systemic nature. The manifestations in other bodily parts or systems hold significant implications for the onset and prognosis of dementia. The thesis underscores the vital role played by nutritional and muscle status in the realm of dementia.
Borda´s research currently revolves around crafting personalized and preventive approaches for dementia. These approaches consider factors beyond the brain, including the muscular system, and encompass multidimensional interventions like exercise and nutrition.
