Taking aim at Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, Arizona State University and Banner Health have partnered to advance the diseases’ study, treatment and prevention. The research alliance will be led by Eric Reiman, M.D., executive director of the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and university professor of neuroscience at ASU, and Raymond N. DuBois, M.D., Ph.D., executive director of the Biodesign Institute at ASU.
The partnership between ASU, one of the nation’s largest public research universities, and Phoenix-based Banner Health, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health systems, includes the launch of a new Arizona State University-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center on ASU’s Tempe campus.
This effort capitalizes on Banner’s internationally recognized programs in Alzheimer’s disease research and patient care and ASU’s rapid ascension as a world-class research university. It also leverages Banner’s close working relationships with other research organizations in Arizona.
