Arizona is becoming a major player in the global race to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease. Thanks to relatively small but critical state support, an innovative consortium is making strides in research and offering more options for Arizona patients.
The consortium, cooperating under the umbrella of state funding, pulls together seven biomedical research organizations as its principal partners. It's an all-star line-up: Arizona State University, Banner Alzheimer's Institute, Barrow Neurological Institute, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Sun Health Research Institute, Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and University of Arizona.
