Pioneering Neurosciences Institute Sets Date for Dedication of New Facility and First-Ever International Forum on Memory and Memory Disorders
Date:8/26/2008

ON OCTOBER 16 WORLD-RENOWNED SCIENTISTS WILL CONVENE TO SHARE CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH ON ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, MEMORY AND AGING

MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On October 16th, 2008, the new $30 million Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute (BRNI) located on the campus on West Virginia University and founded in honor of U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller's mother, will play host to prominent international scientists who are advancing 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 led to breakthrough advances for the aging brain, Alzheimer's disease, and patients suffering from memory loss and memory disorders. The next day, on October 17, BRNI will open its doors to the public and further continue the Institute's research, which started nearly nine years ago. The approximately 78,000 square foot three-level building will provide state-of-the-art laboratory space and support research activities for nearly a hundred scientists and researchers.

"Even before the doors have opened, BRNI has undertaken ground-breaking research into the treatment for Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders. Now, for the first time ever, the best and brightest minds in our country, and from around the world, will gather to discuss the state of memory and memory disorders research and have a place to carry on their important work," said Sen. Rockefeller. "I know the heartbreak that comes with having someone you love slowly fade from Alzheimer's. BRNI's opening is a great day for not only West Virginia, but for all families across the globe that will benefit from its important work."

The prestigious list of scientists chosen to share their research is an international mix of experts from Switzerland, to Harvard Medical School, to West Virginia University and includes:
