Dr. Kinga Szigeti is Co-Principal Investigator on $2.35 Million Alzheimer Disease GrantPosted: February 17, 2016
Kinga Szigeti, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Director of UB’s Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center, has been awarded a $2.35 million grant from New York State to establish a Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease in Western New York. Dr. Szigeti and Dr. Bruce Troen, Chief of the Division of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, share co-principal investigator roles on the grant. The funding will be directed to provide state-of-the-art medical care and educational programs in Western NY for this most common form of dementia. Educational programs will be targeted to numerous audiences including primary care providers, patients, caregivers, and future medical professionals. Given Western NY’s disproportionate numbers of older residents, the grant is of particular importance for our region. Some 10 grants were distributed across the state.
