All trainees (fellows, postdocs, junior faculty, residents, research associates, etc.) interested in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) are invited to attend the ADRD IDEAS Forum, held monthly by the Duke-UNC ADRC. The forum will include early-career investigators from Duke, UNC-CH, ECU, NCCU, and UNC-Pembroke. 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.
