Support research, education, training and other activities related to Alzheimer’s Disease.
The purpose of this fund is to provide financial support for a variety of activities within the Department of Neurology in the area of Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders.
The Department of Neurology is part of UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
At UB, our pre-eminent neurological team integrates innovative, compassionate patient care with interdisciplinary research, while training more than 100 medical students, neurology residents and neurology fellows each year.
The department includes a comprehensive Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center, in which students build specialized knowledge of common neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, mixed dementia and other conditions. Specifically, students learn how to identify clinical presentations, how to monitor drug effectiveness, and how to assist patients and their families, among other skills.
In the world of medicine, there is always more that we can do. More physicians we can train. More discoveries we can make. More lives we can save. Now, even as we celebrate all we have recently achieved, we continue to look forward to the possibilities ahead. Bold ambitions require big investments—and generous support. Together, we will continue to build on our shared success and lead the way toward the future of medicine.
