This multidisciplinary center is a hub of aggressive campus-wide effort toward a better understanding of, and eventually a cure for, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
Defining disease mechanisms
The center investigates how the brain handles toxic proteins in various dementias in the hope that we can clear these bad actors from the brain.
It explores novel disease biomarkers that will improve diagnosis and may lead us to targeted clinical treatments.
Pioneering brain imaging
We apply advanced imaging techniques to achieve earlier and more accurate diagnosis and to make discoveries about disease pathways.
Our investigators participate in a growing number of clinical trials that test potential disease-slowing therapy for Alzheimer's.
Improving brain health
The center sponsors innovative wellness programs for patients, families and caregivers that focus on improving the lives of those living with or affected by the disease.
