The Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer’s Center was founded as an integrated interdisciplinary program combining academic, clinical, and research expertise to advance research to minimize the public health burden of Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment. Under the leadership of founding Director, Dr. Angela Jefferson, the Center’s mission is focused on the conduct of innovative research examining mechanisms, risk factors, prevention, and treatment for unhealthy memory loss with age, including mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, and related disorders. The Center interfaces directly with the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Department of Neurology Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology Clinic and uses the latest research available to provide cutting edge diagnostic and clinical care. The Center is committed to training and educating the next generation of clinicians and scientists to ensure ongoing advancement of the field of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease for years to come. The Center offers a setting for the greater Nashville and middle Tennessee community to engage in cutting-edge research opportunities and obtain advanced clinical care for memory loss with age.
