Albert Dayor Piersson
Profession: PhD candidate at the University of Cape Coast, Central Region, Ghana.
Educational background: PhD (candidate), MSc (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), Dipl. (Radiologic Technology)
Research focus: Diagnostic imaging of neurodegeneration, genetics, lifestyle and environmental influence.
Reason for joining UNITED: For collaboration by building a consortium on a large-scale, to share data, experience and skills.
Opinion on the current state of imaging research on neurodegeneration in Ghana: At the moment there is no imaging research on neurodegeneration in Ghana, which causes a big gap with respect to knowing the trends and patterns of a wide range of neurodegenerative diseases in the country.
Highlight of his career: “Transitioning from over a decade of clinical work experience into full-time lecturer at the University where I teach undergraduate students has been a milestone in my career path.”
Fun fact: Albert loves to dance (i.e. salsa, bachata, merengue, and kizomba).
