Associate professor in human development and family studies, Tricia Neppl, received $438,780 from the National Institute on Aging to conduct research on cognitive function in audiences of men and women 70 years of age or older. The research, titled “Predicting Cognitive Function: Biomarkers and Economics in a Rural Aged Cohort”, has broad public health implications as it tests the effectiveness of technology and assessment tools that would be appropriate for screening thousands of individuals at minimal cost as a means of determining early-stage treatments and interventions for cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
