Brown University’s Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research is committed to advancing early detection and individualized treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Significant investment and advancements in knowledge and discovery have bolstered Brown’s strength in Alzheimer’s disease and neurodegeneration research. The Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research integrates the expertise of Brown’s Robert J. and Nancy D. Carney Institute for Brain Science and the Division of Biology and Medicine.
Housed within the Carney Institute, the Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research catalyzes collaborations across basic and clinical research groups toward uncovering when, where and how Alzheimer’s disease first arises to advance the pace toward treatment. Our research projects integrate knowledge across biological systems in humans, including behavioral, neural, vascular and immune.
