New Superfund Research Center will explore metals’ effects on cognitive health

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has been awarded a five-year, multimillion-dollar federal grant to establish a Superfund Research Center to study the effects of metals and metal mixtures on cognitive health in late life.

The new Center—called “Metals and Metal Mixtures: Cognitive Aging, Remediation and Exposure Sources (MEMCARE)”—is aimed at assessing and evaluating how metals and metal mixtures contribute to cognitive decline and memory loss in older age; studying the biological mechanisms underlying these effects; and developing new ways to detect and remove metal contaminants in drinking water sources.
