Cure Alzheimer’s Fund was created fourteen years ago by philanthropic families who were impatient with the slow pace of Alzheimer's research.

Our Research Consortium and Scientific Advisory Board are composed of leading Alzheimer’s researchers, including Nobel laureates, from premier research institutions across the United States.  More at
