Mitchell Center for Alzheimer’s Disease

The George and Cynthia Mitchell Center for Research in Alzheimer’s disease and Related Brain Disorders follows a pioneer new concept of scientific investigation devoted to high risk/high impact research aimed to revolutionize our understanding of brain diseases and to translate the scientific knowledge into the discovery and development of innovative treatments and diagnostics for patients affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegenerative conditions.

The main goals are:

  • Discover major scientific breakthroughs that open new avenues to understand and treat brain degenerative diseases.
  • Eradicate Alzheimer’s, Parkinson and related diseases by combining the development of innovative and efficient treatments with early diagnosis to eliminate the disease before it produce disease symptoms and brain damage.
  • Develop cures for these diseases, so that patients already affected by the illness can be treated efficiently.
