Our research strategy

The Alzheimer's Association is committed to accelerating the global effort to eliminate Alzheimer's disease. We are the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research. We believe in the value of collaboration and are willing to imagine a time when we will have disease-modifying treatments, preventive strategies and gold-standard care for all people affected by Alzheimer's disease.
