Research Partnership in Cognitive Aging

This project was a public-private effort between the National Institute on Aging and the McKnight Brain Research Foundation (MBRF), coordinated by FNIH, 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, this partnership funded 17 research grants with a total of $28 million in over five years.  The research aimed at expanding understanding of how people think, learn and remember with age, and at developing interventions to maintain cognitive health as people grow older.
