Training in the Neurobiology of Aging

The University of California, Irvine’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND) training program has a solid track record over its 34-year history of producing highly successful scientists who enter academia or apply their training and knowledge in private industry to address dementia, a challenging and serious health problem for the nation and our growing senior population. This multi-interdisciplinary training program, led by Drs. Carl Cotman and Andrea Tenner, emphasizes preparation and instruction in the application of molecular and quantitative approaches to the elucidation of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of age-related neurodegeneration, brain plasticity during aging, and age-related changes in learning and memory. Faculty from the Schools of Biological Sciences, Medicine, Information and Computer Sciences, and from UCI MIND are part of the training program.
