Research interests

Dr. Kiselica directs the Clinical Evaluation and Research in Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ClEaR-ADRD) lab, in addition to providing clinical services in the Adult Neuropsychology Clinic. The lab has been previously supported by grants from the Alzheimer’s Association, the National Academy of Neuropsychology, and the National Institute on Nursing Research. He has current funding from the National Institute on Aging and the University of Missouri. Research in the lab focuses on three areas: 1) developing and validating advanced techniques for early detection of symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias; 2) examining how assistive technologies can improve the lives of older adults, people with dementia, and care partners; and 3) improving understanding of the relationship between stress and cognitive decline.
