Research

All of our Division of Aging and Dementia faculty hold joint appointments in the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain and the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center, two investigative centers whose goal it is to uncover the causes of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Frontotemporal Dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders, and to discover ways to try to prevent and cure these diseases. In collaboration with other institutes and centers at Columbia University Medical Center, as well as local, national, and international research partners, we remain dedicated to improving the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Our research involves basic scientific studies of the molecular and genetic basis of neurodegeneration, neuropathological studies, imaging studies of the brain, and observational and clinical trials of approved and experimental drugs and natural supplements.
