Everyone has been touched by a neurological condition, or knows of someone who has. That’s why, at UVA, we are starting to answer questions about the brain we didn’t even know how to ask a few years ago.

What if we could use UVA’s newly discovered connection between the brain and the immune system to treat Alzheimer’s disease?

What if we could treat Alzheimer’s before the symptoms appear?

What if we could create a roadmap for successfully managing memory impairments and dementias, providing hands-on support for patients at every turn?

What if we could use Big Data and imaging to understand how we remember some things and forget others?

The pace of discovery is getting faster, but for those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, it’s still not enough.

Private support is critical to accelerating our work and generating discovery that helps people living longer, healthier lives. By supporting the UVA Brain Institute, you can help us find the answers we need.
