    2016 Research Grant

    CTF is awarding a $50,000 grant to The Pittsburgh Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (PIND). Specifically, the grant will go to Dr. Amantha Thathiah, for the application entitled “Role of GPCRs in Alzheimer’s Disease”. Her proposal on translating the genetics of neurodegenerative disorders into therapeutic strategies aligns with the goals and mission of CTF. After extensive review and gaining a better understanding of her research objectives, the CTF board of directors agreed that her application was most promising in providing valuable knowledge in the area of Alzheimer’s research which in turn, we believe, can further the treatment of all dementias. The research grant was awarded at our Roll for a Reason Gala on November 12, 2016.
