The N. Bud Grossman Center for Memory Research and Care is a tripartite endeavor encompassing basic, translational, and clinical research on memory disorders. Our goal is to relieve the suffering caused by Alzheimer's disease. We are working towards safe and affordable prevention strategies and comprehensive care and support for people with memory problems and their families. In order to achieve this goal, we have brought together scientists, physicians and health care workers.We are one of four centers within the Institute for Translational Neuroscience (ITN), administered within the Medical School which is a division of the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota. The center members are drawn from the Departments of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Psychiatry. Our center has strong ties to the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Health System, Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (VA GRECC) where some faculty have joint appointments and some of our research is performed.
