Biography

Dr. Yuri Agrawal's research is directed at studying age-related changes in vestibular function. She employs a combination of vestibular physiologic testing and epidemiologic methods.

Dr. Yuri Agrawal's long-term research goals are: 1) to determine the changes in vestibular function that occur with aging, 2) to understand the association between changes in vestibular function and clinically significant outcomes such as falls, and 3) to apply these insights towards the development of strategies to screen for, prevent and treat vestibular dysfunction and reduce fall risk in older individuals.
