two Rotarians in Sumter, SC.  Their focus: offering innovative, cutting-edge Alzheimer’s research grants. Their funding: pocket change collection at weekly Rotary meetings. Coins for Alzheimer’s Research (CART) was born.

In 1997, D-7770 took on CART as a project.  Since then, additional districts have joined this simple effort to cure Alzheimer’s.

In May 2016, CART membership reached a new peak: 19 Districts.  An remarkable total of 34 grants valuing $5.8 M have been awarded through CART grants to date.

Congratulations to CART and its member Districts!  #CARTFUND #ImCuringAlz

Tanzi and Zlokovic also describe how their own research on topics like infection and brain vasculature are helping to develop a more complete understanding of Alzheimer’s and identify new targets for intervention.
