Research Profile

Dr. Marsiske’s research has focused on cognitive aging, with a particular emphasis on cognitive intervention strategies with older adults. Since 1997, Dr. Marsiske has been a principal investigator on the National Institute on Aging ACTIVE trial, a clinical trial of cognitive training for older adults with twenty years of followup data. With Dr. Adam Woods and Ron Cohen, the NIA-funded “Augmenting Cognitive Training” trial examines whether cognitive training benefits for older adults can be enhanced via transcranial direct current stimulation. Marsiske has also been funded by NIA, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, McKnight Brain Institute for studies of a variety of cognitive intervention approaches with older adults including exercise promotion, exergames, aerobic fitness, action video games, self-administered computer training, and cognitive collaboration. Dr. Marsiske previously led the Recruitment, Retention and Adherence Core of the University of Florida NIA-funded Claude Denson Pepper Older Americans’ Independence Center (PI: Marco Pahor, MD), and collaborates with Dr. Carolyn Tucker in the University of Florida Program for Health Disparities Research. Marsiske is currently core leader of the Data Management and Analysis Core of the NIA-funded 1Florida Alzheimers Disease Research Center. Marsiske also directs a UF NIA-funded institutional predoctoral training program (T32) in aging.
