Alzheimer's Disease

Collaboration

At IU School of Medicine, collaboration is key to solving Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. Dementia research programs and investigators here share resources to support and facilitate research at the school, the university and beyond. The school’s education programs are exposing the next generation of physicians and investigators to innovations in molecular biology, genetics, neuropathology, and imaging technologies. IU School of Medicine is developing new researchers specifically trained to discover innovative approaches to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
