A Thank You from Dr. Ksenia Kastanenka

Dr. Kastanenka from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School expresses her gratitude for the research she was able to achieve thanks to the donors of BrightFocus Foundation.


Alzheimer's disease is a major cause of dementia which affects 47.5 million people worldwide and is expected to increase to more than 135 million by 2050. Alzheimer's brings incredible pain and suffering to patients and their families.

The new grant from BrightFocus Foundation allows me to solidify my commitment to contribute to scientific understanding of the disease process aimed at helping reverse the disorder as well as alleviating pain and suffering. I'm really grateful to BrightFocus donors for their generous contributions to this worthy cause.

Together we can stop Alzheimer's disease.
