Two ADRC Scientists receive Alzheimer Association grants

Barbara Bendlin, PhD and Michele Ries, PhD each received a new investigator grant from the Alzheimer’s Association. Dr. Bendlin’s study will focus on early white matter changes and cardiovascular risk factors in people who are already at high risk for AD. Dr. Ries is studying apathy in people with MCI to determine if this neurobehavioral feature adds predictive value and whether it is associated with a characteristic pattern of brain function. Congratulations to Drs. Bendlin and Ries!
