Alzheimer's Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Research receives five-year NIH grant
Nursing and Public Health faculty to train early-stage investigators from underrepresented backgrounds
A five-year grant has been funded by the National Institutes of Health to support the Johns Hopkins Alzheimer's Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Research to address the burden of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, or ADRD, which affect the minority older population disproportionately.
A goal of this grant is to train and support early-stage investigators from underrepresented backgrounds who are carrying out ADRD-relevant research that supports cognitive health and well-being in minority older adults.
Co-investigators are Elizabeth Tanner, a professor in the Department of Community-Public Health at the School of Nursing; George Rebok, a professor in the Department of Mental Health in the Bloomberg School of Public Health; and Roland Thorpe, an associate professor in the Department of Health, Behavior and Society in the Bloomberg School.
