Alzheimer’s partnership to contribute up to $5M to boost dementia research in Alberta

Neuroscience researchers at three Alberta universities will see a new source of funding for innovation in dementia knowledge and practice, thanks to a partnership between the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories (AS AB/NT) and Campus Alberta Neuroscience (CAN). A new research competition will launch in September 2022, providing up to $1 million annually into high priority areas concerning Alzheimer’s and dementia. This initiative will enhance quality of life for those living with dementia - in Alberta and beyond - and will generate new knowledge toward finding a cure.
