CAM Center faculty Bringing together people and Ideas

Faculty at the CAM Center come from across the UF Health campus to create a diverse hub for cognitive aging and memory research.

CAM Center Leadership


Sara Burke, Ph.D.

Dr. Sara Burke is a professor in the department of neuroscience. Dr. Burke’s research program focuses on understanding how different brain regions communicate with each other in support of behavior, and how cognition and memory are altered by old age.

Adam J. Woods, Ph.D.

Director Adam Woods, Ph.D., is a professor of clinical health psychology and associate dean for research at UF’s College of Public Health and Health Professions. Woods’ work demonstrates that combining treatments like cognitive training with non-invasive brain stimulation (tDCS, TMS, tACS) facilitates neuroplastic response of brain tissue, improves cognitive abilities (specifically working memory, attention and speed of processing) and leads to long-term improvement.
