Krueger and colleagues receive NIA Grant
Dr. Bob Krueger, along with Drs. Matt McGue and Glenn Roisman (ICD) received a grant of $5.3M from the National Institute on Aging. The project is entitled, “The impact of adverse interpersonal experiences (AIE) on mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and risk for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) in ethnically diverse twins” and runs from 9/8/22 to 5/31/27.
This project examines the significance of adverse interpersonal experiences for diminished cognitive functioning in later life by conducting a follow-up of the Minnesota-Carolina Twin Study of Aging (MCTSA), a longitudinal study of 800 pairs of ethnically diverse twins. The twin design of the study allows a strong test of the hypothesis that AIEs are linked to diminished cognitive and physical health through environmental pathways.
