The Flinn Foundation: Promoting Translational Research in Precision Medicine: Arizona Aging and Cognition Collaboration

Juan Carlos Laitano was awarded the first Flinn Scholar Summer Internship, and is working closely with the Arizona Center on Aging and the Interdisciplinary Consortium on Advanced Motion Performance (iCAMP) in the area of gait and dual tasking in frailty.

Juan Carlos obtained a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Arizona State University in 2013, and will begin a Masters in Bioengineering working closely with Marco Santello, PhD in the area of neural engineering and neurorehabilitation, with long range plans to attend medical school.

The purpose of the Flinn Foundation: Promoting Translational Research in Precision Medicine: Arizona Aging and Cognition Collaboration is to build a strong cross-state inter-institutional collaboration in aging, neurology and bioengineering between Arizona’s academic, health system, business and research partners.

Co-PIs: Bijan Najafi, PhD (UA-COM, Tucson) and Marwan Sabbagh, MD (UA-COM, Phoenix),
Co-Investigators: Jane Mohler, MPH, PhD (UA-COM, Tucson) and David Coon, PhD (ASU)
