This scholar will be part of the Addressing Health Equity in Age-Related Disorders (AHEAD) cluster hire initiative. This multidisciplinary initiative seeks to advance knowledge of neurodegenerative disorders, treatments, and technology solutions, promote quality of life among individuals, families, and communities, and develop a deep understanding of the social, racial, and ethnic health disparities associated with the onset and treatments of neurodegenerative disorders to map a path towards health equity. It is expected that the success of the AHEAD cluster will inform later activities addressing other age-related chronic diseases (e.g., atherosclerotic heart disease, cancers, and foundational metabolic disorders). Moreover, the AHEAD cluster will complement the Rutgers Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Research Center (RUADRC), a clinically driven center that is part of the Rutgers Brain Health Institute primarily aimed at identifying the underlying mechanisms of Alzheimer’s Disease through novel in vivo and human-derived in vitro models as well new diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. The AHEAD cluster will emphasize the societal role and what factors lead to age-related health disparities specific to neurodegeneration, with interweaved expertise across engineering, kinesiology and health, cell biology and neuroscience, and social work to connect the cluster efforts to RUADRC. We seek a scholar dedicated to advancing excellence in research, teaching, and engagement with a focus on equity in aging, neurocognitive diversity, and mental health in middle and later life. The scholar also will join the RUSSW Hub for Aging Collaboration as a core faculty member.
