Baldwin Announces $3 Million Federal Grant for Alzheimer’s Research in WI

Senator Tammy Baldwin announced Wednesday that $3 million in federal grant funding
from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) would go towards the Wisconsin
Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (WADRC) at the University of
Wisconsin-Madison. She was able to acquire funding due to her membership in the
Senate Appropriations Committee.


With more than five million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, a
number that is projected to grow by millions in the next ten years, Baldwin says this federal funding will help Wisconsin continue to be a leader in accelerating groundbreaking research on Alzheimer’s.


Baldwin has been a supporter of Wisconsin research, science and
innovation and has worked to secure funding for NIH in order to help support the efforts of research leaders. WADRC’s main focus will be on prevention research that will help slow the impacts of Alzheimer’s disease.
