Her research is focused on (epi)genetic and molecular mechanisms linking environmental determinants, such as lifestyle, pharmacological and socioeconomic factors with age-related health outcomes in population studies. For this, Carolina has used a multi-OMICs approach, combining genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic markers using cutting edge technologies, advanced biostatistical methods and interdisciplinary teams. Her work is embedded in large international and national cohort studies from diverse ethnic backgrounds, such as the Rotterdam Study, the UK Biobank and the Framingham Heart Study, the Chilean National Health Survey and others. Dr. Ochoa-Rosales has several scientific publications in prestigious scientific journals in the top 25% of their respective field, and has received multiple honours from prestigious scientific societies and scholarships. Further, she has served as peer-reviewer for prestigious scientific journals such as Clinical Epigenetics, Clinical Nutrition and PlosOne. As a Lead Investigator at BrainLat Institute, Carolina Ochoa-Rosales aims to research genomic and epigenomic diversity of mental and cognitive health outcomes in underrepresented populations, as well as the epigenetic mechanisms linking such outcomes and their environmental determinants.
