The UCLA Longevity Center is dedicated to improving quality of life through the alleviation of age-related memory loss.
Our research, funded in part by the NIH/National Institute on Aging , investigates normal brain aging, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease in an effort to accelerate detection and intervention strategies. The Center provides state-of-the-art cognitive and brain scanning assessments, programs for improving mental performance , and opportunities to volunteer for brain imaging and memory research.
For researchers interested in launching relevant projects, the Plott Professorship in Gerontology  provides potential funding sources.
