A Halifax-based research team has received close to $1.5 million from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) that will help with the development an earlier, more definitive way of diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease.
The grant was awarded to lead applicant Dr. Sultan Darvesh (Dalhousie University), together with co-applicants Dr. Ian Pottie (Mount Saint Vincent University) and Dr. Steve Burrell (Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Health Authority), and several additional collaborators.
