The Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain is a new interdisciplinary institute in Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. Their mission is to develop the means to identify vulnerable individuals at risk for Alzheimer's Disease and devise new therapies to prevent or delay disorders of the aging brain. If you or a loved one is in need of patient care, they can offer you the most advanced diagnostic and clinical care currently available. You can make an important contribution in the quest to develop new treatments by participating in clinical trials, signing up for brain donation, or supporting their research and clinical programs.
