2nd WORKSHOP PROGRAM

The Collaboratory is happy to announce the pilot project proposals selected for funding and presentation at the 2nd Workshop on Research Definitions for Reserve and Resilience in Cognitive Aging and Dementia:

Rory Boyle, PhD cand.,Trinity College Dublin
James Cole, PhD, University College London
Brittney Yegla, PhD, University of Florida
Daniel Gray, PhD, University of Arizona
Colin Groot, PhD cand., VU University MC Amsterdam
Christian Habeck, PhD, Columbia University
Holly Hunsberger, PhD, Columbia University
Sarah-Naomi James, PhD, University College London
Anna Marseglia, PhD, Karolinska Institute
Lidia Vaque-Alcazar, PhD, University of Barcelona
Eero Vuoksimaa, PhD, University of Helsinki
Gabriel Ziegler, PhD, University Magdeburg

Congratulations to our winners and our thanks to all applicants for the first round of pilot proposals.

The 2nd workshop on Research Definitions for Reserve and Resilience was presented virtually. The workshop featured brief live presentations from our Pilot Project awardees followed up by panel discussions and ample Question and Answer sessions with the audience. The intention was to try to come to consensus on operational definitions for the reserve/resilience concepts.

Access to the workshop materials is available through the Registration.
