San Francisco: New brain institute takes aim at global dementia
Contra Costa Times

With dementia cases rising rapidly around the world, UC San Francisco and the University of Dublin announced Monday the launch of an institute aimed at helping developing countries learn more about the disease and cope with the burden it places on patients, families and caregivers.

The Global Brain Health Institute, which will be housed in San Francisco and Dublin, will train 600 neuroscientists, policymakers, economists and others over 15 years in an effort to help developing countries better understand dementia, as well as how to delay and prevent it.
