Thanks to ADRC supporter Robert Kahen, we at the ADRC were pleased to have established our first formal summer research internship program in memory of Mrs. Moussa Kahen. Mr. Kahen’s support towards future aging and memory researchers allowed our interns to attend educational lectures and outreach activities and get hands-on experience with clinical and basic science research methods. All four interns were supervised by senior ADRC faculty on a variety of research projects that included neuropsychological testing and education, our ADRC Brain Tissue Donation Program, our ongoing neuroimaging studies, our Spanish cohort and a basic science presentation on gamma-secretase and Alcadein culminating in a presentation on August 1st to an audience of students and faculty. We welcome these young academics to the field!
