Advanced dementia treatment

Our care is built on groundbreaking comprehensive research and the latest advancing therapies for dementia and all neurologic disorders.

Because of our world-renowned research at the Biggs Institute and UT Health San Antonio, those impacted by dementia, movement disorders, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurologic disorders have access to innovative expert care.

Help advance treatment as a healthy volunteer

Everyone can contribute to our understandings of brain aging and help us find new drugs and leading-edge treatments for dementia as a healthy volunteer.

Healthy volunteers are greatly needed for observational studies, where participation may include free annual health exams or providing information about your lifestyle.

As a healthy clinical trial volunteer, you can help our team learn more about brain health across different lifestyles, ethnicities and other factors.

By 2030, 40% of Alzheimer’s patients in the U.S. will be Hispanic or Black.

However, Hispanics make up less than 1% of participants in National Institutes of Health clinical trials.

Our new trial for healthy volunteers seeks to represent this underrepresented group and understand their high risk for dementia.
