JAX Researcher Awarded $5.4M to Study Cognitive Resilience in Early-onset Alzheimer’s
A researcher at the Jackson Laboratory (JAX) in Maine has been awarded a five-year, $5.4 million grant to investigate why genetic mutations linked to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) — and found people with a family history of the disease — don't always affect memory and cognition.
