Canada-Cuba-China partnership gets $1M to study Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s and dementia research just got a significant boost from a tripartite Canada-Cuba-China research collaboration. Ludmer Centre Scientific Director Dr Alan Evans is part of an international team that just received $1 M in financial support over three years to initiate the first scientific collaboration on brain imaging and neuroinformatics among leading neuroscience researchers in Canada, Cuba and China.

The Trinational Axis in Normal and Pathological Cognitive Aging project will investigate the basic mechanisms of dementia, identify early biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease, foster the clinical translation of research findings, and assess the impact of different aspects of lifestyle (sleep, physical exercise, nutrition) on aging and dementia.
