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 100 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); the NIDUS Delirium Research Network; and the HELP National Dissemination Program. Dr. Inouye received the 2013 Harvard Clifford Barger Excellence in Mentorship Award and the 2015 M. Powell Lawton Award from the Gerontological Society of America for her contributions to training the next generation of geriatric investigators.


  • NIDUS is a collaborative research network dedicated to spurring innovation and new advances in delirium research through development of new research and measurement resources, training opportunities, pilot funding and dissemination of information. It is funded through an award from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute on Aging (grant no. R33AG071744). You can learn more about NIDUS at our website and on Twitter @nidus_delirium.
