Senator David Carlucci Visits the CDR

New York – New York State Senator David Carlucci toured the Center for Dementia Research during his visit to the Nathan Kline Institute. CDR scientists showed the Senator a glimpse of their research and provided a tour of the laboratories. In addition, NKI announced the awarding of several major federal research grants to CDR investigators, including a prestigious NIH Program Project Grant awarded to the CDR’s director, Ralph Nixon PhD, MD. Dr. Nixon commented, “We are gratified that NIH places strong confidence in the AD research programs at the CDR and their promise for pioneering innovative, more effective therapies for AD and related dementias.” Senator Carlucci’s past appropriation of State funds for a state-of-the-art microscope helped NKI’s scientists to secure the highly competitive federal grants.
