For Researchers

The McKnight Brain Research Foundation champions research to better understand age-related cognitive decline and memory loss. We continually invest in a wide range of research projects and support new generations of emerging researchers to meet our goal of alleviating the effects of age-related cognitive decline and memory loss.

As people are living longer and looking to remain independent and live rich, full lives, the Foundation provides scholarships and grants to bring together talented researchers who can advance the knowledge and understanding of age-related cognitive decline and memory loss in its own domain and establish its importance in the health and welfare of the public.
