Center for Memory Disorders Research Programs

At the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders, we are as passionate about research as we are about taking care of patients. Our research spans a full spectrum, from bench to bedside: In basic science labs, we investigate the fundamental causes of Alzheimer's disease and creating novel treatments. Other faculty of the Center study advanced neuroimaging technologies and lab-based studies of blood samples, in an effort to make early diagnosis possible. Finally, we enroll interested patients in clinical trials of new therapies.

Discovering the cure for Alzheimer's disease will require good ideas from unexpected places. The Stanford Center for Memory Disorders benefits from being a part of Stanford University, a world-class research university with an enviable track record of discoveries, inventions, and ground-breaking contributions to virtually every area of human knowledge dating back to 1891.
