April 2023 CCAD Connections
We are excited to announce another successful Charleston Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease! This year we awarded one grant of $100,000. Since the first CCAD conference in 2013, we have awarded over one-million dollars in funding through the New Vision Awards. The goal of CCAD is to provide a forum for multi-disciplinary scientists to meet and collaborate so that each year we are one step closer to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease!
