Joost Michiel Riphagen, MD, PhD, was trained as an anesthesiologist and critical care physician in the Netherlands and Germany and worked clinically for more than a decade in these fields before earning a PhD in clinical neuroscience at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, where he researched vascular contributions to aging and dementia in January 2020, with work conducted at the Massachusetts General Hospital (Mass General) Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston in the lab of Dr. David Salat. 

After spending 2021 working clinically, Dr. Riphagen joined the Mass General Gordon Center for Biomedical Imaging as a research fellow. His research interests include the role of the subcortical modulatory systems (locus coeruleus, basal nucleus of Meynert) in Alzheimer's disease and the intersection with these structures with the vascular contributions to dementia and aging.
