USA TODAY International Edition - - MONEY -

Mi­crosoft co-founder Bill Gates is ready for his next en­deavor: join­ing the fight against Alzheimer’s dis­ease. Gates re­vealed Mon­day that he in­vested

$50 mil­lion in the De­men­tia Dis­cov­ery Fund, which is work­ing on new ap­proaches to treat­ing de­men­tia. “It’s a mir­a­cle that peo­ple are liv­ing so much longer, but longer life ex­pectan­cies alone are not enough,” Gates wrote in a blog post. “Peo­ple should be able to en­joy their later years — and we need a break­through in Alzheimer’s to ful­fill that.”
