Jul 29, 2015 Comments Off by

Recently, the National Institute of Health (NIH) gave Stanford the final notice of a $7.3 million award to fund an Alzheimer’s Research Center, one of more than two dozen centers that have been established and funded by the NIH as part of an attempt to advance research about Alzheimer’s disease.

“We have some of the most outstanding neuroscientists here at Stanford,” said Tony Wyss-Coray, co-director of the Center and faculty affiliate of the Stanford Center on Longevity. “And we’re trying to recruit more [neuroscientists] to help translate their findings to a potential treatment. That’s not obviously as easy as it sounds, but it will help us learn more about very basic mechanisms and see if we can model them.”
