Funding

We gratefully acknowledge funding support from the following:

The Margaret Q. Landenberger Research Foundation - Formed in 1992 and located in Philadelphia, PA, the Margaret Q. Landenberger Research Foundation provides initial funding for novel medical research projects in the hope that this will help the scientists further expand their research through additional grants from other sources. Brown Brothers Harriman Trust Company, N.A. serves as the foundation’s corporate trustee.

The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation - The Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) is the only non-profit organization whose sole mission is to accelerate the discovery and development of drugs to prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer's disease, related dementias and cognitive aging. Since 1998, the ADDF has granted more than $51 million to fund over 370 Alzheimer's drug discovery programs in academic centers and biotechnology companies in 18 countries. For more information about the ADDF, please visit http://www.alzdiscovery.org.

The Whitehall Foundation - The Whitehall Foundation assists scholarly research in the life sciences, especially in dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by federal agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. The foundation emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers and productive senior scientists who wish to move into new fields of interest. For more information, see http://www.whitehall.org/about/.

The National Institutes of Health - The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services and is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and health-related research. Its science and engineering counterpart is the National Science Foundation. The goal of NIH research is to acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and disability, from the rarest genetic disorder to the common cold. The NIH mission is to uncover new knowledge that will lead to better health for everyone. NIH works toward that mission by conducting research in its own laboratories, supporting the research of non-federal scientists (in universities, medical schools, hospitals, and research institutions throughout the country and abroad), helping in the training of research investigators, and fostering communication of medical and health sciences information.http://www.nih.gov/about/

The National Science Foundation - The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense… http://www.nsf.gov/about/index.jsp
