Published Papers

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is proud to present a list of published papers resulting from our research grants. The researchers we have funded have published nearly 200 papers, which have been cited over 10,300 times. The work reflected in these papers has helped us to better understand Alzheimer’s and find ways to intervene that may lead to slowing or reversing the disease. We thank all the researchers and lab personnel for their dedication and commitment to the common mission of ending this disease, and we congratulate them for the important work they are doing. We also are grateful to our donors, who have made this work possible. Without your support and generosity, these papers and the forward momentum they represent would not exist.
