The Duke/UNC Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC, NIA P30AG028716) promotes career development in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (AD+ADRD) research through its core resources. The central theme of our ADRC is to identify age-related changes across the lifespan that mediate the development, progression, and experience of Alzheimer’s disease. Applicants are encouraged to leverage the services and resources of the ADRC Cores
Purpose of the Award: The goal of the ADRC Research Education Component (REC) is to promote the development of future research leaders who are conducting basic, translational, or clinical AD+ADRD research within the focus area of age-related changes across the lifespan. The REC will award up to 4 REC Scholar awards annually, of 2-year duration, with funding beginning July 1, 2023. The award can cover salary, project support, and research career development activities. REC Scholars are supported by the ADRC Cores listed above, and meet regularly with a mentorship team including ADRC Investigators. At the conclusion of the award, REC Scholars are expected to pursue external funding in their research area.
