[Source: TGen] – Dr. Matthew Huentelman of the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) will trade test tubes and his lab coat today for a safety helmet and shorts as he bikes 200 miles to help increase funding for Alzheimer’s disease research.

The Breakthrough Ride 2010, sponsored by the national Alzheimer’s Association, started July 17 in San Francisco, Calif., and will end Sept. 21 — World Alzheimer’s Day — in Washington, D.C., in an effort to encourage Congress to more than quadruple federal funding for Alzheimer’s research.
