Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer's Center

Established in 2012

We are an interdisciplinary team committed to discovering the root cause of Alzheimer's disease. Our approach combines innovative methods in genomics, biomarkers, brain imaging, and vascular assessments. With growing evidence that brain and vascular health are intertwined, we seek to map the pathways that lead to Alzheimer's disease pathology and cognitive decline among older adults. We are inspired by the communities we serve and the knowledge that our work will contribute to reducing the immense burden that Alzheimer's disease creates on patients and families.

Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer's Center affirms the urgent need to end the disproportionate burden of Alzheimer's disease on families of color. Our researchers are committed to making discoveries that benefit our local communities. Specific actions we are taking to promote equity include developing outreach programming and implementing a Community Advisory Council to advise our leadership on the inclusion of underrepresented groups in Alzheimer’s and memory research.
