Boston University Launches Population Health Study to Understand Factors that Increase Dementia Risk

A new population health study launched this week by the Boston University School of Public Health and Savonix will look at digitally collected data on the lifestyle factors that increase dementia risk. With the cognitive data, health history and lifestyle data from 400,000 individuals, researchers hope to accelerate early intervention efforts and drug development in Alzheimer’s disease. Our aim is to generate data on an unprecedented scale that will assist researchers, universities, biotech and pharma companies in the fight to better understand individual differences that hold the key to treatment, prevention and ultimately the elusive cure for Alzheimer’s disease, said Mylea Charvat, Ph.D., CEO and founder of Savonix, a company that produces digital tests for cognitive health.
