Zenith Fellows double support for research in honor of the Association's Silver Anniversary

To advance Alzheimer research in new directions, the Alzheimer's Association Zenith Fellows doubled the number of Zenith research awards from five to 10 this year.

The Zenith Fellows form a group of distinguished individuals and organizations who pledge $1 million each to support the Zenith awards. The awards go to top researchers who have contributed significantly to the field of Alzheimer research.

The proposed research must be on the cutting edge of basic, biomedical research and may not conform to current conventional scientific wisdom or may challenge the prevailing orthodoxy. The research supported by the Zenith Fellows addresses problems related to early detection, etiology, pathogenesis, treatment and prevention of Alzheimer's disease.

"The potential for major breakthroughs and real progress toward prevention can only be realized with proper funding. It seemed fitting to award $2.5 million in support of research as the Association celebrates twenty-five years of progress and hope in the fight against Alzheimer's disease," said Zenith Chair Jim Prugh.

The Zenith Fellows members have contributed over $25 million in support of cutting-edge research since the program began in 1991.
