    This program provides family members of individuals with familial ALS the opportunity to contribute to research focused on learning more about why motor neuron degeneration begins and how or why it progresses. This study provides genetic counseling and testing to help participants understand and manage their risk and determine if they want to learn their genetic status. This study will follow unaffected ALS gene mutation carriers on an annual basis to gather essential information that will ultimately help researchers develop novel therapies for the prevention and treatment of ALS. The ALS...

    For more than 30 years, The Columbia University Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) has worked with thousands of participants who have helped provide important insights into how the brain ages and why Alzheimer's disease may develop. We are actively recruiting adults 65 years of age and older who share our commitment to be part of this nationwide study. Younger participants are welcome if there is a personal or family history of memory loss. Participants, both with and without memory problems, will be comprehensively evaluated beginning with a physician taking a history and performing...

    Patrick J. Lao, PhD
    The purpose of this study is to determine how inflammation is related to changes in the brain that occur during the progression of Alzheimer's disease. If you are eligible for this study, we will ask you to complete 3-4 study visits over the course of about 5 months. Participation includes memory testing, a blood draw, MRI, PET scans, and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap). You will be compensated $750 plus travel costs. After 2 years, we will invite you to return for a follow-up.

    The purpose of this study is to better understand how vascular health affects your thinking abilities. We hope that these findings will ultimately lead to treatments aimed to reduce cognitive impairment and dementia. We are actively recruiting adults between the ages of 65 and 90 who note some decline in memory or thinking over the past 3 years and who are of African American, Hispanic/Latino, or European ancestry. You will be asked to return to the Columbia University Medical Center every 12 to 18 months for a total of 3 assessments. At each visit, you will be asked to complete a series of...

    We need your help today to gather information about the experience of patients with autoimmune diseases of the central nervous system (multiple sclerosis (MS), neuromyelitis optica (NMO), and antiMOG associated disease (MOGAD)) in regards to COVID-19 vaccines. Because individuals with MS, NMO, and MOGAD were not included in the COVID-19 vaccine trials, we want to learn more about the experience of individuals with these autoimmune diseases and the vaccine. Because many patients with central nervous system autoimmune disease also take medications that affect the immune system, we want to find...
