BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The University at Buffalo has been awarded a $2.35 million grant to launch a Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s disease.

The goal is to improve the screening, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

UB says the new center will work with multiple clinics and providers in western New York to help improve patient access to clinical trials as well as educate providers about non-pharmaceutical approaches, such as exercise.

The five-year grant was awarded by New York state to researchers in UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
