Grantee in the News: Catherine Kaczorowski appointed new Endowed Chair in Alzheimer’s Research at the Jackson Laboratory View MoreBACK

AFAR congratulates 2014 New Investigator Award in Alzheimer's Disease recipient and 2017 Glenn/AFAR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for Translational Research on Aging Selection Committee Catherine Kaczorowski, Ph.D. on being appointed as the new Evnin Family Endowed Chair in Alzheimer’s Research at the Jackson Laboratory (JAX), where she has served as an Associate Professor.

The endowed chair is funded in part between Judith and Anthony Evnin, Ph.D. and a match from JAX’s board of trustees.

Kaczorowski’s lab uses JAX’s unique mouse models to identify the protective factors that determine whether Alzheimer’s progresses, and how rapidly. She calls these protective factors “biomarkers of resilience,” and hopes one day to use that knowledge in the development of new therapies for Alzheimer’s.
