Up to 20-percent of people over 65 will experience mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in their lifetime. The $23.4 million MCI project funded by the Cox Foundation will empower people with MCI through technology, built environment and therapeutic programs. It’s an opportunity and an example of how collaborative work within Georgia Tech and with Emory clinicians can make life better for people with MCI. We will provide a brief update on the project progress and particularly focus on emerging plans for the Innovation Accelerator. This is a key resource to fuel the MCI Empowerment Program and catalyze new innovations and research in this overall space. Please come prepared to discuss research ideas and how we can grow the capacity of our research in this critical area.
