Canadian Institutes of Health Research to Host International Alzheimer’s Conference, Conduct Alzheimer’s Research
The number of Canadians afflicted with Alzheimer’s and related dementias will increase from about 480,600 in 2008 to 1,125,000 by 2038, it is estimated. For this reason, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) is leading a massive research effort that aims to identify the mechanisms that lead to the disease, delay the onset and the progression, and improve the quality of life of those living with Alzheimer’s, as well as their caregivers. In addition, July 14-19, 2012, Canada will host the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver. For more information, click here to read the full release.
