Dr. Novak is Director of the Syncope and Falls in the Elderly (SAFE) Laboratory, Associate Professor of Neurology, Stroke Division at Harvard Medical School, and Adjunct Professor of Mathematics at North Carolina State University. She graduated from Charles University Medical School and obtained her PhD form the Czech Academy of Sciences. She continued her training at  University of Montreal and McGill University,  Montreal CA, and Mayo Clinic Rochester MN, U.S. and served as director of Autonomic laboratory at the Ohio State University. In 2001, she founded the SAFE laboratory at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston U.S.. Her area of interest is to study the effects of life style disorders (obesity, diabetes, hypertension) on well-being of older adults, falls and cognitive decline, and she has designed new strategies to promote successful aging. Implementation of preventive and treatment strategies using novel interventions, modeling and simulations may help to facilitate well-being of people as they age.
