Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Currently, there is no way to prevent, cure or slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. The Fisher Center believes that through breakthrough research we can end Alzheimer's.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Alzheimer's Disease Research

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation is an organization that provides millions of dollars for novel Alzheimer’s research primarily conducted by the late Nobel Laureate Dr. Paul Greengard and his team of over 40 internationally renowned scientists at the Fisher Center lab at The Rockefeller University, plus other leading research institutes around the world.

The Fisher Center lab at The Rockefeller University is one of the largest and most modern scientific facilities in the world dedicated to solving the puzzle of Alzheimer’s disease.

We also support the research of Dr. Barry Reisberg at NYU's Medical Center. His 'Clinical Stages of Alzheimer's' is used by physicians around the world.

The Foundation educates the public about Alzheimer's disease and care through its Information Program to include its website, www. ALZinfo.org, and magazine, Preserving Your Memory: the Magazine of Health and Hope.

We have been awarded a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for the past nine consecutive years. The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation overhead averaged 8% for the last ten years.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the Fisher Center is to translate the knowledge that our scientists gain in the laboratory into viable treatments and ultimately, a cure. Through scientific and clinical research, our scientists have made incredibly valuable findings about Alzheimer's disease.
The team of over 40 world-renowned scientists at the Fisher Center lab at The Rockefeller University has published many major findings that have led to a potential paradigm shift in how Alzheimer's is studied worldwide, and will possibly be treated in the future.

We plan to raise funds through public and private sources to fund research and programs. Through the continuation of these programs we hold the greatest hope for finding a cure in the foreseeable future while continuing to improve the lives of those with the disease and that of their caregivers.

The organization is well equipped to carry out the goals as we are funding several top scientists who are studying Alzheimer's disease. We also have experienced and knowledgeable staff to help carry out the strategic plans of the organization and raise funds towards Alzheimer's research.

The Fisher Center lab at The Rockefeller University has been making a coordinated effort to find ways in which drugs might selectively target beta amyloid without toxic side effects. Several projects in the lab are based on their discovery of Gamma Secretase Activating Protein (GSAP), which is responsible for stimulating the production of beta amyloid. They believe that GSAP will make an excellent target for drugs to treat the disease. That’s because drugs that utilize GSAP are expected to lower beta amyloid levels without inhibiting other processes necessary for health."
