Our Center was established in 2005 through a generous gift from an anonymous donor. Our continued operation depends in part on public resources, such as competitive grant funding and University support, but donations from private individuals are equally vital. These generous gifts allow us to sustain our Center's innovative design and to pursue new clinical and research goals.
We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of our recent donors. For a complete listing of our benefactors, please click here.
How Can You Make a Difference?
Experts predict that the number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease will increase 50% nation-wide by the year 2030. In Utah alone, they expect a 45% increase by the year 2010. Chances are, you or someone you know will be affected by Alzheimer's disease or by an equally devastating, but related dementia.
Although scientists know more now than ever before about these diseases, they still have much to learn. Through national and international collaborations, our Center is dedicated to discovering new and improved methods of treating Alzheimer's and related diseases. Your contributions can help us reach our goals.
