As part of Innovations in Mind, UTMB is striving to raise $7.5 million to support the groundbreaking work of UTMB's Mitchell Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases. It's part of an audacious vision: a world free from the debilitating neurological conditions that rob their victims of memory and function. A world where the best of biomedical science restores life and hope. A world made possible through your generosity.
These discoveries may hold the key to unlocking the door to breakthrough treatments.
In recent years, the Mitchell Center has been home to a series of pioneering discoveries.
- Our researchers discovered that certain individuals possess brains neurobiologically identical to those with Alzheimer's disease - but they never develop the devastating illness.
- We are developing an innovative vaccine for Alzheimer's disease and related disorders targeting the toxic proteins implicated in these conditions.
- We have found that an anti-rejection medication for transplant patients can stop the devastating neurotoxic effects of Alzheimer's disease in the brain.
- We demonstrated that infrared light shows promise as a possible therapeutic approach to slowing or even reversing the course of Alzheimer's.
