EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A five-year, $5.7 million grant will support a new Michigan State University study aimed at identifying early signs of Alzheimer’s disease among Latinos and Hispanics.

The funding announced Thursday by the East Lansing school is from the National Institute on Aging.

Hector M. Gonz├ílez is the principal investigator of the “Study of Latinos - Investigation of Neurocognitive Aging.” The associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics in the College of Human Medicine and his colleagues will gather health data from nearly 7,000 middle-aged and older adults.

The research will include Hispanics and Latinos between the ages of 50 and 80 years old who may show signs of a possible early form of Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers from a number of other schools are involved in the project.
