Accelerating research on Alzheimer's disease and related dementias: NIH's FY 2021 bypass budget and progress report
Fifty years ago, American astronauts took one giant leap for humankind by landing on the moon.
They say we’re in the age of artificial intelligence, but sometimes it’s more like the computers have minds of their own.
The stars of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias research will be out next week at the 2019 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC), July 14-18 (with preconference events starting July 11) in Los Angeles.
How do some older adults retain relatively normal or youthful thinking and memory abilities despite the presence of neurodegeneration or Alzheimer’s-related pathology in the brain?
Millions of Americans and their caregivers are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias now, and that number will continue to grow.
The National Advisory Council on Aging recently met for the second time this year here in Bethesda, MD.
In the interest of increasing speed and efficiency, NIA initiated last year a new strategy for announcing Alzheimer’s-related research topics we hope to support.
In my career I’ve been on both sides of the grant review process.
The recent strong funding support for Alzheimer’s science at NIA is a wonderful opportunity. But this exciting surge in clinical research brings with it a burgeoning demand for clinical research volunteers, and NIA is eager to assist investigators in achieving their recruitment goals.
Anybody who has ever loved, lived with, or cared for a person with Alzheimer's disease or its related dementias knows that its effects are multifaceted, complex, and often difficult to predict.
