The CTSI Training and Professional Development Program is pleased to announce its newest KL2 scholar: Adam Woods, Ph.D., an assistant professor of aging and geriatric research in the UF College of Medicine and assistant director of the UF Institute on Aging’s Cognitive Aging and Memory Clinical Translational Research Program. Woods’ research is focused on using non-invasive brain stimulation to combat cognitive aging.
“Adam is a rising star in the area of translational research of cognitive and physical aging. He has a very aggressive grant submission agenda and his KL2 award is just the first step of a very promising academic career,” said Marco Pahor, M.D., director of the UF Institute on Aging.
Woods joins five other CTSI KL2 scholars conducting research in areas as diverse as health services research, management and policy; psychiatry; health education and behavior; speech, language and hearing sciences; and neurology. The six KL2 scholars represent the colleges of Health and Human Performance, Medicine, and Public Health and Health Professions.
