This article reports that the University of California, Irvine has received $9 million in grant funding from the National Institute on Aging. The grant is for five years and is set to fund more than 30 researchers. The funding is a renewal of an expiring $6 million grant from the National Institute on Aging, part of the federal Department of Health and Human Services. The funding is set to back three projects. One looks at brain changes with aging that underlie the decline of memory. The second tests the theory that defects in mitochondria, or a cell's energy source, plays a role in causing Alzheimer's. The third project looks at how the removal of plaques associated with Alzheimer's affects the disease's progression.
