Dementia Research StudiesRSS

The Nevada Consortium on Dementia Research is a membership group open to Nevada institutions with an interest in developing collaborative research, education and public service programs for people living with dementia.  The studies listed in this directory are those vetted by the Consortium. Listing a study in this database is voluntary, as such this may not be a comprehensive list of research studies related to dementia in Nevada. Study information is updated quarterly by researchers and Consortium members.

 

There are three (3) ways to search for studies in Nevada.  Studies are listed by:

  • Diagnosis - what diagnosis do you or your loved one have? 
  • Type of Study - This is the way the study is conducted.  It delineates studies that are clinical trials versus prevention versus research. 
  • Researcher - Are you looking for a specific researcher?  Here you can find a listing of Nevada researchers and their studies. 

Select the category below, then your specific criteria within that category.
