Reynolds’ primary research focuses on how and why individuals differ from one another in health and cognition, and that early-life and life-course factors that influence those differences.

On Alzheimer's

Reynolds studies the apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene’s relationship to the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Her research considers how early one might see an impact from the gene’s presence; even before decline is evident.
