Maggio Wins Zenith Fellows Award

CincinnatióJohn Maggio, PhD, director of the Department of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics at the UC College of Medicine, was named a 1999 Zenith Fellow Award winner by the Alzheimer's Association. The Zenith Awards program provides support for investigators who have contributed significantly to the field of Alzheimer's disease research. Maggio's research group has focused on Alzheimer's disease, both in the basic mechanisms of the growth of beta-amyloid plaques that have been linked with loss of brain function, and in developing ways to find new treatment drugs. He will receive $100,000 a year for two years to fund his research.
