Lucie Kalousová, assistant professor of medicine, health and society and of sociology at Vanderbilt University, has received a two-year New to the Field Award of $114,000 from the Alzheimer’s Association. Kalousová will use the research award to investigate potential links between cognitive health and tobacco control policies in states and communities across the U.S.

Corey Bolton, postdoctoral fellow at the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer’s Center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has been awarded a two-year, $140,000 Alzheimer’s Association Clinician Scientist Fellowship. Bolton will use the funds to develop educational materials to assist clinical teams in communicating clinical findings of mild cognitive impairment to patients.

“On behalf of the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer’s Center, I want to congratulate Dr. Bolton and Dr. Kalousová on receiving these prestigious awards,” said Angela Jefferson, director of VMAC and professor of neurology and medicine in the Vanderbilt School of Medicine.  

“Understanding the impact of health policy on brain aging, as well as how to communicate disease risk most effectively to patients and families, are critical endeavors in our efforts to ultimately prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease. We are very grateful to the Alzheimer’s Association, their fundraising partners and the generous donors who made the support for these early career scientists and innovative projects possible.”
