What We Do

Our Research

The Institute's faculty members are housed in various departments across the Schools of Public Health, Medicine and Health Sciences, and Nursing. Members are united by their interest in research in brain health or dementia. Their diverse expertise includes biostatistics, epidemiology, qualitative methods, econometrics and health policy, and clinical medicine. Current projects span a range of issues related to brain health and dementia, including policy, prevention, clinical needs, and social determinants of health.
