Eric Donahue (Burkewitz Lab) was recently awarded an NRSA F31 Fellowship from the National Institute on Aging.

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote diversity in the translational research workforce for Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD). This predoctoral fellowship program will emphasize the development of skills in data science and drug discovery and their application to various aspects of AD/ADRD research (from populations studies to research that can lead to new treatments and diagnostics, including all aspects of behavioral and social research). It will support research training of promising predoctoral candidates from diverse backgrounds to help them gain critical translational skills in data science and drug discovery. The long-term goal of this program is to develop a diverse translational workforce that can effectively participate in and/or lead a team-science, precision medicine approach to studies of AD/ADRD treatment, prevention, early detection, and disease management and care.
