A Living Memorial Proposed For Reagan

There have been rumblings in past days - especially in the blogosphere - on how to link a legacy for Ronald Reagan to stem cell or Alzheimer's research. Unfortunately, Alzheimer's is one of the few age-related conditions for which stem cell research does not offer potential therapies in the near future. However, senators introduced a bill today to double NIA Alzheimer's funding in memory of Ronald Reagan: "We should honor his life with new research and new initiatives on how to prevent Alzheimer's, how to care for those who have it, how to support those who are caregivers, and how to find a cure."
