Research for a cure
The mission of the Memory Disorders Clinic at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center includes conducting research in improving the diagnosis and eventual cure of Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other related memory disorders.

A research fund has been set up to provide an opportunity for individuals, families and organizations to become a part of the cure by donating funds to help facilitate and support the research efforts here in the Memory Disorders Clinic. This money is used directly for research conducted at Ohio State's Medical Center. The research has provided substantial benefits to the local Ohio patients and families that participated in the studies and has contributed important knowledge regarding Alzheimer's disease and other dementing conditions to the research community and the world.
