Two neuroscience students were appointed to the T32 Research Training in Non-Pharmacological Interventions for Cognition in Aging, MCI, and Alzheimer’s Disease: Tara Cooper in Dr. Sara Burke’s lab, and Alejandro Albizu in Dr. Adam Woods’s lab.
Directed by Drs. Marsiske and Woods, this training program focuses on training related to evaluation of treatments for preventing or slowing cognitive aging, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
In addition to receiving two years of support, these trainees will benefit from regular meetings with a multi-disciplinary mentoring team; the development and close tracking of individual developmental goals; meetings with the directors to discuss topics including as the protection of human research participants, theory/method/past findings in cognitive interventions, and professional development; and supplemental coursework and other educational opportunities, including a team science project with other trainees.
