GAP-Net site Brigham and Women’s Center for Alzheimers Research and Treatment received a $25 million donation.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital has received a $25 million gift to establish and support a new Alzheimer’s prevention program, the Boston-based organization said July 13.
The gift, from Andrew and Kate Davis and the Shelby Cullom Davis Charitable Fund, will be used to advance research working to predict and ultimately prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
“Our talented team of Alzheimer’s researchers have dedicated their lives to finding ways to disrupt this disease,” said Betsy Nabel, MD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital president. “We are exceedingly grateful to the Davis family for their transformative gift that will significantly accelerate our work and bring us closer to our ultimate goal of eradicating Alzheimer’s.”
The new program will be named the Davis Alzheimer Prevention Program to honor the donors.
