Shannon Macauley Ph.D.
“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.”
