2017 Boerger Research Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease and Neurocognitive Disorders
Receiving this foundation award will help me achieve a personal goal of fighting Alzheimer’s disease. My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease a few years ago, so I knew I wanted to do something to help future generations from suffering from this disease. This foundation award will help me collect preliminary data towards a goal of a clinically feasible non-invasive bio-marker for AD. With earlier detection, we can provide earlier treatment that will hopefully lead to a cure.
