Alzheimer’s Association Honors Dana Hills High School Student at Young Scientist Awards

Ryan Lindeborg, 17, of Laguna Niguel was recognized for his academic achievements, including his work at the Garcia MRSEC Summer Research Program.

 Orange County’s top researchers in the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia gathered at the Anaheim White House Restaurant on June 13 to honor four Orange County students pursuing careers in Dementia related research. Guests were also treated to a special presentation by nationally recognized Alzheimer’s researcher, Daniel W. Wesson, PhD. from Case Western Reserve University.  Wesson presented his latest research on sense of smell as an early indicator for cognitive impairment.

Among those being honored was Ryan Lindeborg, 17, a student from Laguna Niguel.

The Harvard bound high schooler was recognized for his impressive academic achievements, including his work at the Garcia MRSEC Summer Research Program. While most kids his age are focusing on their Friday night plans, Ryan is planning his future career.

His passion for research and desire to improve the overall living experience of those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease fueled his decision to major in Human Development and Regenerative Biology in the fall. The Alzheimer’s Association was pleased to award Lindeborg a scholarship to help him jumpstart his journey into the dynamic field of Alzheimer’s research.
