Alzheimer's Clinical Research Unit


Our mission is to improve the lives of individuals affected by Alzheimer's and related diseases through innovative research, education and compassionate care.


We will bring research advances into the clinic and community that will reduce the burden of Alzheimer's and related diseases through early detection and effective intervention.


We strive to gain a deeper understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of mild cognitive impairment; increase research participation of underrepresented people, such as members of the African American community; and, improve care protocol for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment. Ultimately, we want to prevent the burden of neurological diseases for future generations.
