Welcome to the Alzheimer’s Prevention Laboratory directed by Dr. Judy Pa.
Our research is focused on identifying genetic and lifestyle risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and developing innovative interventions for improving brain and cognitive health in older adults. Using a combination of cognitive, behavioral, and neuroimaging techniques, our primary goal is Alzheimer’s prevention.
The Alzheimer’s Prevention Lab is an academic research lab at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and a part of the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS) and the Department of Neurosciences. Dr. Pa is a Professor of Neurosciences and Co-Director of the ADCS.
