African-American Diabetes Heart Study – MIND
Grant Start Date: 2011-06-01
Grant End Date: 2016-04-30
This project will evaluate cerebrovascular disease (CBVD) in African Americans (AA) with type 2 diabetes, and compare results to existing MRI and cognitive data in a cohort of European Americans with type 2 diabetes. The goal is to determine whether racial differences exist in the relationship between CBVD and cognitive performance and to identify the environmental and inherited causes of CBVD in the high risk and understudied AA community.
