Scientists and clinicians at our Center have worked on several different areas of genetics research.

Dr. Lindsay Farrer, Chief of the Genetics Program at BU School of Medicine, leads the MIRAGE Study, which is evaluating the role of both genetic and non-genetic risk factors in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

For more general information on genetics and Alzheimer’s disease, please refer to the National Institute on Aging’s Alzheimer Disease Education and Referral Center, or the Alzheimer’s Association’s fact sheets on genetics.
