Funding Information:
Donna M. Wilcock , PhD, is the Sweeney–Nelms Endowed Professor in Alzheimer's Disease Research and associate professor in the Sanders–Brown Center on Aging and the Department of Physiology at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY. Dr. Wilcock's research is focused on vascular cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID): the second most common cause of dementia behind Alzheimer's disease. In addition to being a major cause of dementia, Alzheimer's disease patients commonly have vascular dementia as a co-morbidity. She has projects to examine the molecular mechanisms of VCID, focusing primarily on inflammatory processes. Dr. Wilcock also has projects that determine the influence VCID has on the progression and severity of Alzheimer's disease, as well as how VCID affects response to Alzheimer's disease targeted therapeutics. Her research is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Alzheimer's Association.
