David Fardo, PhD, Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky College of Public Health has been selected to serve on the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center’s (NACC) Scientific Review Committee.
The National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center was established by the National Institute on Aging in 1998 to facilitate collaborative research. Its mission is to serve as a shared research resource in order to facilitate research in Alzheimer's disease.
The Scientific Review Committee was created to review applications submitted for NACC-funded collaborative projects and junior investigator secondary analyses, and to make recommendations to the NACC's governing body, the NACC Steering Committee, on the scientific merit of those applications. The Committee follows a review procedure similar to that of an NIH study section. Members, who serve a three year term, offer expertise in several areas that are important in the assessment of grant proposals, such as statistics and epidemiology, which is Dr. Fardo’s area of expertise.
