Recruitment Accelerator
for Diversity in Aging Research

Cognitive Loss & Dementia

The Recruitment Accelerator for Diversity in Aging Research, Cognitive Loss & Dementia (RADAR-CLD) is a National Institute on Aging (NIA) funded grant (R24AG065163) to develop, evaluate, and document a replicable process for creating the capacity and infrastructure to ensure recruitment and retention of diverse participants in cognitive research in aging. The RADAR-CLD grant project is composed of two main components:


The establishment of an Accelerator for cultivating and leveraging collaborative teams across scientific and non-scientific divides focused on collecting stakeholder input early on, to move science in the right direction with feasible designs and addressing key issues of equity, recruitment, and retention in cognitive research in aging.

Community Research Liaison

The Community Research Liaison (CRL) is a novel research professional who is uniquely focused on building an environment of trust and mutual respect among community members and connecting the community with research partners through Accelerator activities to maximize research participation.
