$1M research chair to focus on Alzheimer’s and related dementia

Saskatoon, SK – A new $1 million research chair, a partnership between the Saskatchewan Research Health Foundation (SHRF) and the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, is the first in a series of 10 potential Saskatchewan Research Chairs administered by SHRF.

“The purpose of the Saskatchewan Research Chair in Alzheimer’s disease and Related Dementia Chair is to recruit and retain an expert in the area of Alzheimer research,” said June Bold, SHRF’s CEO.

Launched in 2008, SHRF’s Saskatchewan Research Chair Program aims to support the work of current health researchers and attract top talent from elsewhere to help build capacity in areas where Saskatchewan has specific needs and strengths. Researchers are invited to apply for this chair by contacting SHRF or accessing the application at
