Research

 

Over the last 15 years, scientists have made enormous strides in understanding how Alzheimer's disease affects the brain. Many of these recent insights point toward promising new strategies for treatment, prevention and diagnosis.

At Kawartha Regional Memory Clinic we have extensive experience in conducting clinical trials. Principal investigators interested in utilizing clinical trial coordinators and site staff for other areas, are welcome. The Research Group will collaborate on research projects in other areas with other Principal Investigators.

Kawartha Regional Memory Clinic is closely affiliated with the Consortium of Canadian Centres for Clinical Cognitive Research (C5R). Our trials offer an opportunity for patients with mild to severe dementia to enhance their treatment options.

A team of clinically trained trial coordinators and assessors provide cognitive evaluations and clinical trial management that allows for multiple concurrent clinical trials.
