The MIND Center


The MIND (Memory Impairment and Neurodegenerative Dementia) Center at the University of Mississippi Medical Center is one of the nation's leaders in the search to crack the code of Alzheimer's disease.

Funded by a $26 million grant from the National Institute of Health, The MIND Center is leading a collaborative study of Alzheimer's with experts from four major academic medical centers.

The MIND Center, with access to over 20 years of groundbreaking research, has a unique opportunity to identify and understand the causes of Alzheimer's, now the nation's sixth leading cause of death.

Led by Dr. Tom Mosley, a nationally recognized leader in the study of cognitive decline, The MIND Center combines pioneering research, state-of-the-art brain imaging and powerful new genetic technologies to make discoveries about Alzheimer's causes, and potentially change the course of almost 40 million lives affected by the disease worldwide.
