$40 Million Gift to Pacific Neuroscience Institute Brain Health Center Furthers Alzheimer’s Treatment and Research
In this story:
- A $40 million donation from Will and Cary Singleton is supporting the Pacific Neuroscience Institute (PNI) Brain Health Center at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in its pursuit of novel and effective treatments for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and related memory and cognition disorders.
- Researchers aim to improve early detection and profiling the “at-risk” population using state-of-the-art neuroimaging, genomic data and blood biomarkers, while also refining targeted lifestyle interventions to slow or reverse cognitive decline.
- Researchers will also assess the impact of novel interventions such as stem cells and repurposed drugs for patients already in the grip of dementia.
“We looked at Alzheimer’s and thought, ‘Who’s going to solve this problem?’ After evaluating programs across the country, we are convinced that PNI and Saint John’s have the right approach, the right people, and the necessary spirit of innovation to make significant progress in this critical fight.”
