The READD-ADSP project is a 5-year long study that involves individuals living with Alzheimer’s and disease-free healthy control individuals.

Why now: Recruiting individuals for Alzheimer’s disease genetic studies in Sub-Saharan Africa is challenging, especially for those with low socioeconomic status and living in rural areas, due to cultural stigma.

Expected outcome: This project aims to enhance Alzheimer’s disease genetic studies in underrepresented African ancestry and Hispanic/Latinx populations

Funding: National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Research lead: Professor David Ndetei, Dr Victoria Mutiso, and Professor Raj Kalaria.
