Research Partnership in Cognitive Aging
Public-private effort between the McKnight Brain Research Foundation
and the National Institute on Aging. Coordinated by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health
About the Partnership
The Research Partnership in Cognitive Aging aimed to support current and emerging research on age-related changes in the brain influencing cognition and memory loss associated with normal aging. Launched in 2009, the partnership funded 17 research grants with a total of $28 million over five years. The research aimed to improve our understanding of how people think, learn and remember with age, and develop interventions to maintain cognitive health as people grow older.
We recently renewed this longstanding research partnership with the NIA through the Foundation for NIH for a third five-year cycle.
