Alzheimer’s Association Announces Milestone of $100 Million Invested in Research in 2023

Posted on 11-09-2023

Largest Single-Year Investment in Research since the Organization’s Founding

The Alzheimer’s Association announced this week a landmark $100 million investment into research initiatives in 2023. This unparalleled commitment stands as the largest single-year investment since the organization’s founding in 1980.

In Wisconsin, nearly $450,000 has been awarded to advance research efforts. Included in this historic $100M investment is research being conducted in Madison investigating how fasting may promote healthy aging and protect against the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and a new tool that could help emergency departments better meet the needs of people living with dementia.

“The FDA’s recent approval of the first-ever treatment proven to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s is a monumental step forward in our fight against the disease,” said Dave Grams, Executive Director, Alzheimer’s Association Wisconsin Chapter. “Research funding is so critical in allowing us to get closer to these kinds of discoveries, not only in treatment, but also in diagnosis and prevention.”
