Alzheimer’s Research

In October Kate Mulgrew will be speaking at the Minnesota Medical Foundation 2009 Annual Dinner. This event is not open to the public but I hope to be able to publish Kate’s speech on the website. In August at Creation’s convention in NJ Kate spoke about her interest in Alzheimer’s prevention research being performed by Dr. Karen Hsiao Ashe at The N. Bud Grossman Center for Memory Research & Care at the University of Minnesota. Please find below some information about the Center and links that Kate would like to share. Kate feels passionately about this organization and Dr. Ashe’s research and hopes a cure, through prevention, can soon be found for Alzheimer’s.

Official Name: The N. Bud Grossman Center for Memory Research & Care at the University of Minnesota

Description:

“The N. Bud Grossman Center for Memory Research & Care at the University of Minnesota is a world leader in Alzheimer’s disease research.  Using mouse models developed at the center, director Dr. Karen Hsiao Ashe and her team of research scientists have made remarkable progress in understanding the underlying mechanisms that lead to impaired memory.   This groundbreaking, internationally celebrated laboratory research and an opportunity for powerful new collaborations are uniquely positioning the N. Bud Grossman Center for Memory Research and Care to accelerate discovery of the ultimate cure for Alzheimer’s disease: its prevention.”
