Penn Researchers Receive $18 Million Grant to Study Connection Between Alzheimer's, Dementia, and Parkinson's Disease
National Institute on Aging grant will support Penn's Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research
The Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research (CNDR) at the University of Pennsylvania has received a grant expected to total $18.1 million to study the underlying genetic mechanisms that cause Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, and Parkinson’s Disease to progress as well as how those mechanisms are related to each other and to the cell-to-cell spread of these disease proteins. The grant, awarded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging (NIA), will fund four specific projects over the next five years.
