Two U.S. senators announced Monday UND will be the recipient of nearly $284,000 in federal funds for Alzheimer’s disease research.
The funds will be used for research focusing on palmitate, a chemical common in palm oil and other foods, and how diets high in the chemical increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
