“Participating in the Charleston Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease and receiving the New Vision Award were instrumental in my transition from postdoctoral researcher to faculty member at Wash U and ultimately to attaining a tenure track faculty position with my own independent research lab at Wake Forest. As such, I am part of the Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention which focuses on understanding metabolic and vascular contributions to Alzheimer’s disease.  Therefore, I am expanding upon the work described in CCAD R03 style grant to hopefully make a meaningful impact on the human disease.  I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to participate in CCAD and know part of my success is a direct result of that experience.”  - Shannon Macauley Ph.D.

“One of the most interesting and enlightening conferences I have ever attended. Although I was not ultimately selected for an award, I still benefitted tremendously from the intimate interactions with the scientific board as well as my peers. I think that’s the beauty of the format for this meeting. It allows young Alzheimer’s investigators time to really get to know one another on scientific and personal levels (the key to seeding collaborative possibilities). Many individuals with wealth make overtures about philanthropy, but few follow through with actually making it happen.”   -Fryer, John  PhD

“The awards meant a lot to those who won, but the ones who didn’t win also commented how much they benefited from the experience. They made multiple connections and learned a lot about the review process. It’s really a special process that you have built. Bravo.” – Benjamin Wolozin Ph.D.
