A research team led by University of Florida neuroscience graduate students has devised a new mouse model to study the protein tau, which can abnormally accumulate inside neurons and is associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
To help combat this growing health issue, which affects over 1 million individuals in the U.S., the Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation supports the Collaboration for Pilot Studies in Lewy Body Dementia, an annual research pilot award program at the University of Florida. This year, one-year pilot grants were awarded to two UF investigators conducting pre-clinical research into Lewy body dementia.
Grace Lloyd, a Ph.D. candidate in the department of neuroscience, is the latest investigator to be featured in MBI Rising Stars, a video series highlighting up-and-coming neuroscience researchers at UF.
Three University of Florida investigators have earned Alzheimer’s Association grants for scientists working on new ideas in research of the neurodegenerative disease. The researchers’ projects were selected based on their potential to generate exciting new data and strategies.
