The close collaboration with the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center (CNADC) research enterprise provides rich opportunities for joining and initiating investigations on the biology of neurodegenerative dementias and the neuroscience of cognition. The NIH Alzheimer’s Disease Center of the CNADC, established in 1996, was refunded for an additional 5 years, from 2016 to 2021. CNADC faculty members have NIH grant support in dementia prevention, molecular and functional imaging, neuropathology, quantitative clinicopathologic correlations, neurobiology of language, and successful aging. These well-funded laboratories of the CNADC offer training opportunities (postdoctoral fellowships, K awards, T32s, Pilot Project Awards) for faculty, residents, and fellows in neurology and other departments.
