Alzheimer’s Disease

Bending the curve in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias


The UVA Brain Institute supports transformative innovations in basic, clinical, and  translational research in the neurobiological, social, behavioral, and economic aspects of aging, dementia, and caregiving that advance the health of diverse patients, caregivers, and communities.

The Virginia Alzheimer's Disease Center (VADC), a Brain Institute initiative, is committed to serving all individuals, with increased efforts toward addressing the needs of underserved populations in the state of Virginia and beyond. Scientists, care partners, and persons with dementia are collaborating to improve our understanding of the aging brain. We focus on the impacts of chronic stress, sleep, and health disparities impacting people with dementia and their care partners.

With the expertise of world-class data scientists and cutting-edge technology to collect, store, and extract data, our collected information is readily accessible and available to researchers across UVA as a part of the national effort to study Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
