Julie Robillard

Julie Robillard, PhD is an assistant professor of neurology at UBC, and a member of faculty at the National Core for Neuroethics, and at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health. After completing a PhD in neuroscience looking at synaptic plasticity in the aging brain, Dr. Robillard built on her thesis work in a way that emphasizes the human translational side of neuroscience. She leads a research program at the intersection of dementia, ethics and technology and has developed innovative techniques for the analysis of brain health and social media. Her current research is aimed at evaluating the quality and the ethics of online health information and self-assessment tools for dementia, and the impact of these resources on health and well-being in older adults.
