A Designated Center of Excellence for Dementia Research

Our researchers are dedicated to finding tomorrow’s treatments today through innovative research and clinical trials.

As a National Institute on Aging (NIA)-designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, we collaborate with other designated centers throughout the nation-collaborations that have produced many of today’s research findings and resources for addressing Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

We also work closely with the Sam & Ann Barshop Institute for Longevity & Aging Studies at UT Health San Antonio, the only aging-intensive research institute in the country to have two NIA-funded centers.

Together, with other leading institutions and our patients and their families, we work to find new and better ways diagnose, treat and prevent dementia.
