Pei-Chuan Ho, PhD is a Research Associate at the Penn Neurodegeneration Genomics Center (PNGC). Her current focus is on the Asian Cohort for Alzheimer’s Disease (ACAD), an international collaboration and the pioneering cohort dedicated to studying the genomics of Alzheimer’s Disease among Asian Americans and Asian Canadians. Her research interests lie in understanding the social determinants of health and gene-environment interactions related to Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementia (ADRD), particularly among disadvantaged populations. Dr. Ho’s current exploration involves the integration of health economics and genomic research techniques in the field of aging studies. She is specifically interested in incorporating epigenetics into health economics to examine the impact of environmental exposures on the aging process and other health outcomes. Additionally, she conducts research on opioid disorders, as well as associated mental health conditions such as depression. Her work is expanding to encompass substance abuse among older and disadvantaged populations. Dr. Ho earned her PhD in Economics from Lehigh University in 2021.
