Research

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, private foundations, and major donors investigates normal brain aging, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease, and other age-related conditions 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.
