U-M, MSU, WSU team up against Alzheimer’s

We may battle them on Saturdays, but every other day of the week we’re on the same team as Michigan State and Wayne State universities, battling together against Alzheimer’s disease.

Today, the U.S. National Institutes of Health launched the Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center, a grant holding_hands_in_supportof an estimated $9 million over 5 years to enhance the understanding and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

The new Michigan ADCC will be one of nearly 30 NIH-funded Alzheimer’s disease centers across the nation, and the only one that links three major research universities. It also brings together experts and students in many areas of the U-M campus, from neurology and psychiatry to nursing, radiology and more.
