Monique Breteler (born in 1961) is an epidemiologist with an outstanding reputation in the field of dementia. Her work in the Rotterdam Scan Study led to important insights about Alzheimer’s disease, in particular the role of lifestyle factors, metabolic disorders, inflammation, and vascular mechanisms. Breteler has been hugely successful at identifying links between epidemiological data and brain scan information. She recently helped establish the Rhineland Study, a cohort study of 30,000 individuals.
