University awarded $3.2M for additional Alzheimer’s research

Clemson University’s Preventing Alzheimer’s with Cognitive Training (PACT) study has recently expanded its focus thanks to a grant from the National Institute on Aging. In addition to examining whether computerized brain training exercises can reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease, researchers will also investigate if the condition can be detected early through simple blood tests. Scientists will examine blood samples from study participants to determine which specific blood-based biomarkers could predict Alzheimer’s disease, its severity and responsiveness to treatment.
