The Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center aims to reduce the human and economic costs of Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of knowledge. The Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center was established in 1996 and is one of 30 centers in the US funded by the National Institutes of Health to advance research on Alzheimer’s disease and related conditions. The Center is jointly based at the Boston University Medical Campus and VA Boston Medical Center in Massachusetts. In 2008 the Center began researching Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). With our interest in CTE, we have been able to foster and support high-impact, innovative research on Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and other long-term consequences of repetitive brain trauma in athletes and military personnel.
