Lab Scientists Awarded ICTR Pilot Grants

Drs. Cathy Gallagher and Michele Ries were recently awarded pilot grants through the University of Wisconsin’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. Dr. Gallagher’s project will focus on MRI measurements of basal ganglia perfusion and connectivity in Parkinson disease. Dr. Ries’ project will use functional MRI to examine alterations in brain physiology relating to impaired awareness of memory deficit in people with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
