Alzheimer's researchers get grant

Five University researchers working on three separate projects have received grants from the Alzheimer’s and Related Diseases Research Award Fund.

Erik J. Fernandez, department of chemical engineering, is working on identifying and characterizing protein aggregates responsible for toxic reactions. Carol Manning and Kathleen Fuchs, both from the department of neurology, are studying the physical and emotional impact of Alzheimer’s Disease on women with a parent suffering from the disease. John Savory and Othman Ghribi, department of pathology, are examining the impact of stress in the endoplasmic reticulum on Alzheimer’s disease.

The award fund was established by the General Assembly in 1982 to stimulate innovative investigations into Alzheimer’s research.
