センター長写真

Center for Development of Advanced Medicine for Dementia (CAMD) was established in 2010 in National Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics (NCGG) to accelerate basic and applied researches for dementia, especially focusing on Alzheimer´s disease. As of April 2020, through partial restructuring, our center consists of departments and laboratories indicated as follows; Department of Clinical and Experimental Neuroimaging, Department of Alzheimer´s Disease Research, Department of Aging Neurobiology, Department of Drug Discovery, Department of biomarker research, Laboratory of Animal Models of Aging, and Laboratory for Liaison.
Our mission is to control and prevent dementia, mainly Alzheimer´s disease. To this end, the research activity of our center is mainly divided into three areas, including the elucidation of molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying development of Alzheimer´s disease, the development of procedures for detecting early or even preclinical stages of Alzheimer´s disease, and the drug discovery for preemptive therapy of Alzheimer´s disease. We believe that combining these three areas of research in one center provides a credible achievement to overcome this intractable disease. We sincerely hope and appreciate your understanding and continuous support for our activities.
