The Washington University School of Medicine Charles F. and Joanne Knight Alzheimer Disease Research Center Research Education Component was started in May 2020.  The long-term goal of the REC is to develop and support a diverse group of independent ADRD researchers by helping trainees to develop the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as an independent ADRD investigator.

By developing a dynamic training pipeline, the Knight ADRC REC hopes to meet the nation’s need for a diverse clinical translational workforce in Alzheimer disease and related dementias (ADRD). The REC will assist trainees with career development along the entire training continuum by leveraging national collaborative relationships as well as the rich research and training resources available at Washington University and will provide resources and mentoring to all levels of trainees.
