Warren Family Funds Fight Against Age-Related Disorders

Faculty excellence is supported through the creation of a chair.

WarrenswMr. and Mrs. Wm. Michael Warren Jr. and the Warren Family Foundation recently established the Warren Family Endowed Chair in Neurology in the School of Medicine at UAB. The chosen faculty member will be part of the McKnight Brain Research Institute at UAB.“As is often the case, our interest in memory disorders grew out of our family’s experiences,” Mrs. Warren says.

Mr. Warren adds, “Our specific support for UAB’s efforts in this area was based, in part, on the wonderful work that is being done in the Department of Neurology in treating patients and in advancing scientific knowledge in this critical area. It was also based on our belief that the UAB team will be able to significantly improve future therapies and treatments and even find cures in the years ahead.”

“I am deeply grateful to the Warren family for their continued support and involvement in our programs,” says David Standaert, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the UAB Department of Neurology. “People are our greatest asset. Through this generous gift, we have the opportunity to continue to bring the best and brightest scientists to UAB and accelerate our search for treatments and cures for Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related dementias.”
