The Knight ADRC Postdoctoral Fellowship in Aging and Dementia at Washington University School of Medicine is tailored to the individual goals of each fellow and offers a wide variety of training opportunities across the spectrum of basic, translational, and clinical research that focuses on neurodegenerative dementing disorders. All fellows are provided with ample clinical experiences to ensure their expertise in diagnosis, treating, and caring for patients and their families. The primary aim of the fellowship is to support the career development of each fellow in becoming a successful, independent physician-scientist.

The fellowship is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) nor by the United Council of Neurological Subspecialties (UCNS).


The Knight ADRC offers a 2-year fellowship in aging and dementia and can accommodate 1-2 fellows at a time. The Knight ADRC Director and Principal Investigator, John C. Morris, MD serves as Fellowship Director and mentors/supervises clinical aspects of the fellowship. Additional mentors from a list of potential labs supervise the translational or basic science experiences. You may also wish to contact a recent Knight ADRC fellow to learn about their experience.
