The Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation supports an early career pilot project that tests new ideas about the causes an treatment of dementia disorders. Emphasis is given to projects that link researchers from across the MADCC’s three universities, and researchers are encouraged to think broadly and creatively to pursue areas of inquiry that will push at the boundaries of federally funded projects.
This year’s Erb Family Foundation Pilot Project award was presented to Sami Barmada, MD, PhD, Angela Dobson Welch and Lyndon Welch Research Professor in Neurology at the University of Michigan. Dr. Barmada’s project is “Defining RNA-based Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration in FTLD-TDP”
