Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute Hosts First-Ever International Forum on Memory and Memory Disorders and Dedicates New $30 Million Research Facility
Date:10/16/2008

WORLD-RENOWNED SCIENTISTS CONVENE TO SHARE GROUNDBREAKING RESEARCH ON ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, MEMORY AND AGING

MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the new $30 million Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute (BRNI) research headquarters located on the campus of West Virginia University and founded in honor of U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller's mother, will play host to prominent international scientists who have achieved breakthroughs in their research on Alzheimer's disease and other memory disorders. The first-ever International Forum on Memory and Memory Disorders will highlight the work of nine celebrated scientists whose research has advanced the study of the aging brain, Alzheimer's disease, and patients suffering from memory loss and memory disorders. The Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute is the only research institute in the world dedicated to both an understanding of how human memory works and advancing new discoveries that can identify, treat and repair damages from diseases and disorders that impact human memory.

Tomorrow, on October 17, BRNI will open its doors to the public for the official dedication ceremony of its new research facility. The approximately 78,000 square foot three-level building will provide state-of-the-art laboratory space and support research activities for 125 scientists and researchers working on the mission to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease and other memory disorders.

"This is an important moment not just for West Virginia, but for all scientists researching the diseases and disorders afflicting human memory. I know the pain felt when losing a loved one to Alzheimer's. This research will not only have an impact on the 46,000 West Virginians and their families suffering from Alzheimer's disease, but will have global significance to the 5.1 million people in the United States, and the more than 26 million people around the world who are also suffering*," said U.S
