NYU Langone’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center

We advance current knowledge and understanding of brain aging and Alzheimer’s disease through research.

The Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, part of NYU Langone Health’s Center for Cognitive Neurology, is a hub for interdisciplinary research on brain aging, Alzheimer’s disease, and related dementias. Our mission is to advance the field by funding and facilitating cutting-edge research, expand the number of scientists and clinicians working in Alzheimer’s disease and brain aging, and develop novel diagnostics and treatments.

We are committed to community and professional education, and actively share the results of our research with the scientific community and the general public. Our ultimate aim is to improve the lives and care of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and provide support to their caregivers.

Since 1990, our Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center has been 1 of 37 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers funded by the National Institute on Aging at the National Institutes of Health. As part of this collaboration, we contribute data and biospecimens to national repositories, and offer a robust suite of research resources to NYU Langone and affiliated investigators, as well as to researchers around the country.

The work of Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center–affiliated researchers spans nine interrelated focus areas, or cores, encompassing the full spectrum of Alzheimer’s disease and brain aging research, along with community engagement, professional development, and grant opportunities for both early-career and established Alzheimer’s disease researchers.

NYU Langone physicians and scientists have been at the forefront of brain aging and memory research for nearly 50 years, pioneering breakthrough discoveries in Alzheimer’s disease biology and treatment. Today, NYU Langone’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center is proud to support and foster a new generation of groundbreaking work, with a focus on identifying the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease and designing interventions to delay or prevent disease progression.
