ADRD IDEAS Forum: Biological and Biomedical aspects of ADRD (title TBA)
The Interaction- and Discussion-Enablers for Alzheimer's disease Science (IDEAS) Forum:
· The IDEAS Forum is a dynamic, trainee-oriented series sponsored by the Duke/UNC ADRC to catalyze Alzheimer's disease research among early-career investigators from Duke, UNC-CH, ECU, NCCU, and UNC-Pembroke.
· Occurring monthly, IDEAS Forum content will vary and include: works-in-progress presentations, journal club-style review of recent publications, guest lectures, feedback on grant proposals, and career development offerings.
· Trainees at all levels will be afforded the opportunity to help select topics/speakers, and to design the format of upcoming sessions (monthly sessions may expand to occur more frequently if desired).
· The IDEAS Forum is open to participants across all levels of training, from undergraduates to junior faculty, who are interested in research on Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Investigators in related fields interested in expanding into AD research are particularly encouraged to participate.
