HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Gov. Steve Bullock’s office says more than $900,000 in state funds will go to help create the Montana Center for Aging Research and Memory Care.

The center will research and treat memory disorders and neurogenerative diseases from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

The governor’s office said Monday the center is an alliance between the McLaughlin Research Institute for Biomedical Sciences and Benefis Health System in Great Falls.

The $904,500 will come from the state Department of Commerce’s Bio-Medical Research Grant Program. The money will go to implement new technology, buy updated lab equipment and supplies, pay for seven scientists and researchers and support an animal resource center.

The Legislature last year appropriated $1 million for the Montana Department of Commerce to grant funds for bio-medical research in Montana.
