GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Alzheimer’s research is being taken to another level at the University of Florida.

Lakeisha Williams, Ph.D., Valerie Joers, Ph.D., and Benjamin Chapin, M.D., are the recipients of a 2022 research grant award from the Alzheimer’s Association.

This is helping fund their work looking further into the disease affecting 580,000 Floridians. Each research project is expected to take three years.
