Mission Statement

Together We Can Make a Difference

As the principal investigator on the hormone and cognition study, I am dedicated to finding a way to improve memory for those who suffer from memory loss. I believe that our work will also help future generations minimize the impact of Alzheimer's Disease. Our research group, and others, are making important discoveries to improve memory and delay the progression of the disease.

Success of our research program depends on the participation of people like you- including those who feel they are healthy and do not have memory problems and people who have memory difficulties or questions about their memory functioning. Memory disorders are a problem we must solve together, you can make a difference.
