LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A multimillion-dollar grant has been awarded to the University of Kentucky’s Sanders-Brown Center on Aging to continue its Alzheimer’s disease work.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/2cdvj5H ) reports the $8.25 million, five-year grant will continue the center’s designation as an Alzheimer’s Disease Center. The center is one of only 30 in the country to carry that designation and was among the first 10 designated in 1985. It has been continuously funded since that time.

Sanders-Brown director Linda Van Eldik says the center specializes in detecting early changes in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s and other age-related dementias.

University President Eli Capilouto says the center is an outstanding facility at UK, with the National Institutes of Health funding “another acknowledgement of its excellence.”
