Dr. Malaz Boustani is a senior implementation scientist with extensive experience in conducting implementation research with a main focus on developing tools, processes, and strategies to rapidly implement evidence-based and cost-effective health care solutions in the real world.

I am a geriatrician, a neuroscientist, and implementation scientist with a goal of using insights from behavioral economics, complexity science, and network science to develop, implement and distribute an innovative, sustainable and scalable “Blue Print” of the 21st Century learning Academic healthcare delivery system.

The specific focus of my clinical research work is improving the brain health and the brain care quality at lower cost for older adults suffering from dementia or delirium in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
