The UCI ReMIND team
The Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, or UCI MIND, and its group for graduate students interested in neurological disorders, ReMIND, have received a $12,000 donation from Betty's Foundation, formed by five family members in their late 20s and early 30s to honor their grandmother, who has Alzheimer's disease. The relatives, two of whom live in Trabuco Canyon, raised the money through garage sales, a jewelry party and a band night last fall. Their gift will be used for research in UCI MIND director Frank LaFerla's lab and to fund ReMIND. "They looked into research institutes in Southern California and chose to support our program," says Linda Scheck, community relations director for UCI MIND. ReMIND is run by graduate students Melissa Strong, Maya Koike, Kara Neely and Emily Mitchell (pictured from left to right).
