Position Title: Consultant (Part-time), Aging & Alzheimer’s Prevention Program
Position description: Alzheimer’s disease develops over the course of decades, and many of the choices we make in mid-life affect our future risk of the disease. A growing number of biomarker and genetic studies are improving our ability to determine one’s risk of developing dementia. Additionally, Alzheimer’s disease is heterogenous, and certain patients may respond differently to certain medications or treatments. Therefore, there is a great need for longitudinal deep phenotyping of patients in the clinic.
The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) works towards to advance potential therapies and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. We are partnering with a third party to develop a platform that aggregates data from patients to build predictive models of Alzheimer’s risk and potential response to drugs.
