Wisconsin gets $3 million for Alzheimer's research

Families in Door and Kewaunee Counties may get some help in dealing with relatives with Alzheimer's. A federal grant of $3 million from the National Institute of Health has been secured for Wisconsin’s continued research into Alzheimer’s Disease. The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at UW-Madison (WADRC) has been a leader in research and development surrounding the disease. This funding will allow an increased focus on research into prevention and slowing the impact Alzheimer's makes. Senator Tammy Baldwin helped secure this federal funding and says she’s proud of the work being done in Wisconsin to help aid the more than 5 million Americans currently suffering from the disease. 



The WADRC will use these funds to focus on a number of key areas of research including looking for biomarkers and improving patient care to reduce caregiver stress. This research will potentially help identify risk factors for the disease and continue creating better support systems for those caring for Alzheimer’s patients.
