Training Opportunities

The Aging Brain Center offers training opportunities for investigators at all stages of their careers with an interest in delirium and aging research. Dr. Sharon Inouye has successfully mentored over 70 trainees in aging research to date, many of whom are now leaders in geriatric medicine and independent faculty across the United States. She has established many large-scale training programs in patient-oriented/ translational research while at Harvard, including her individual mentorship program in patient-oriented research on aging, the Center of Excellence for Delirium in Aging: Research, Training, and Educational Enhancement program (CEDARTREE), and the HELP National Dissemination Program. Dr. Inouye received the 2013 Harvard Clifford Barger Excellence in Mentorship Award for her success in training the next generation of geriatric investigators.


The Center of Excellence for Delirium in Aging: Research, Training, and Educational Enhancement (CEDARTREE) was established in 2013 with the goal of advancing research and training in delirium. CEDARTREE offers comprehensive interdisciplinary training and mentorship in delirium research to attract interdisciplinary investigators to engage in collaborative, delirium-related, and patient-oriented research. CEDARTREE advances research and training, fosters dissemination of research findings, and serves as a local and national resource for delirium research. Funded by the NIH, grant K07AG041835, CEDARTREE is lead by Dr. Sharon Inouye in collaboration with Dr. Edward Marcantonio and other experts in delirium and related fields.
