T32 Grant Applications Being Accepted Now
The Sanders-Brown NIH T32 grant (T32 AG078110) entitled “Translational Research in Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias (TRIAD)” will have 2 postdoc slots open for appointment on February 1, 2024 or later. Applications for support are due on January 1, 2024.
The emphasis of the grant is on providing cross-disciplinary training from bench to bedside, ie., spanning the discovery continuum from molecular/biochemical approaches, preclinical translational approaches, and clinical research. The thematic focus is on risk factors for dementia, including cerebrovascular disease, neuroinflammation, acute brain injury, and lifestyle/genetic risk factors. Trainees with diverse research backgrounds beyond standard wet-lab neuroscience, such as bioinformatics, biostatistics, engineering, epidemiology, social sciences, engineering, and community based and human research studies, are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Thirteenth Annual Markesbery Symposium A Great Success
The thirteenth annual Markesbery Symposium on Aging and Dementia was held November 17 and 18th, 2023. The symposium, named in honor and memory of the late William R. Markesbery, MD, founding director of the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, highlights the research being done at the Center as well as current research around the globe.
This year Dr. Malu Tansey of the University of Florida and Dr. David Morgan of Michigan State University were the the keynote speakers at both Friday's Scientific Session and Saturday's Community Session. They were joined by our very own Sanders-Brown Center on Aging experts.
