Under the supervision of Adam Boxer, MD, PhD and Adam Staffaroni, PhD, the Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator (ACRC) will have the opportunity to work on studies that seek to improve equitable access to care by validating digital (i.e., smartphone assessments) and blood-based biomarkers of dementia, with a focus on underrepresented groups. The ACRC will work on UCSF-based and multi-center North American studies of Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, and healthy aging. The ACRC will primarily be working with Spanish-speaking participants; they will help with cross-cultural implementation, recruiting and enrolling participants from community clinics, and interviewing participants about their experiences.
