Tanzi wins Alzheimer's Association honor
Rudy Tanzi, director of the Genetics and Aging Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, has won the Alzheimer’s Association's 2007 Ronald and Nancy Reagan Research Institute Award.
Tanzi, who isolated the first Alzheimer's disease gene in 1987 and collaborated on the identification of two more in 1995, launched the Alzheimer's Genome Project late last year to identify all the genes involved in the disease.
