Logic Model of CNTN
Alzheimer’s (AD) and Parkinson’s Diseases (PD) are inadequately understood and drug development frequently fails; Nevada has too few researchers; Nevada has little scientific infrastructure to train researchers to address the problems of AD and PD patients and to develop junior investigators to address these challenges.
