The UWM Center for Aging and Translational Research receives a $100,000 Greater Milwaukee Foundation Grant:
The UWM Center for Aging and Translational Research Interim Director Scott Strath worked closely with members of the Center’s internal advisory board to submit and secure $100,000 funding from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation for 2014.
The Center’s long-term goal is to develop, nurture, and grow a nucleus of next generation critical thinkers to more effectively deliver translational intervention strategies that will combat current negative aging trends and directly serve the aging constituents of Milwaukee and beyond. Funds received from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation will be specifically utilized for infrastructure support to develop the Center, with a directed focus to foster translational research, education, and training excellence. The central aim of this award will be to create a synergistic and integrated infrastructure pertinent to aging that will result in effective translation to affect community older adult health, quality of life and promote longevity.
Strath went on to say that, “Generous funding from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation will be pivotal to the success of the Center.”
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation is a family of more than 1,100 individual charitable funds, each created by donors to serve the charitable causes of their choice. Grants from these funds serve people throughout Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington counties and beyond. Started in 1915, the Foundation is one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the world.
