Major Projects
Large-scale genetic studies involving thousands of individuals are ongoing at the HIHG, with many funded by the National Institute of Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These studies have been successful in identifying a number of new genes that could eventually translate into clinical care.

In-depth analysis studies at the HIHG

The HIHG is committed to understanding the effect of age, sex and race/ethnicity on Alzheimer disease risk. Many of the in-house projects are multi-ethnic projects dedicated at addressing health disparities.

“Studying diverse populations provides a unique opportunity to discover novel targets and pathways as well as to ensure that all groups benefit from the research.” Dr. Margaret A Pericak-Vance
