ACT-AD Comments to NIA on Its Draft Strategic Directions Document, Aging Well in the 21st Century
December 15, 2014
ACT-AD submitted comments to the National Institute on Aging (NIA) on its draft strategic directions document, Aging Well in the 21st Century. The comments thank the NIA’s director for the priority he has placed on advancing Alzheimer’s disease research and the commitment the NIA has shown to collaborating with other partners to more quickly translate research findings into new treatment options for people living with Alzheimer’s disease. ACT-AD encouraged the NIA to include greater emphasis on research to develop improved tools for measuring cognition and function in early stage AD and on advancing combination drug therapy for Alzheimer’s disease in the Institute’s final strategic plan.
