Microbial Pathogenesis In Alzheimer’s Disease Grant
Intriguing evidence suggests Alzheimer’s disease may have a link to infectious diseases or a microbial mechanism. Could this be the missing link to lead to a cure for Alzheimer’s disease? To advance research that could shed light, and provide hope to the more than 5.7 Americans and 47 million people worldwide living with the disease, the IDSA Foundation established the Alzheimer’s Research Grant now known as the Microbial Pathogenesis in Alzheimer’s Disease Grant, in 2018 to foster further investigation. These grants support research that suggest evidence of an infectious agent or microbial community is correlated to Alzheimer’s disease and promotes novel research in the field of microbial triggers for Alzheimer’s disease.
