With the Research Centers of Excellence network, the LBDA collaborates with 20 of the nation’s leading LBD academic medical institutions to which people with LBD and their families can turn for advanced LBD diagnosis and treatment. Through our combined efforts we are connecting the LBD community with highly-specialized physicians and respected institutions that are committed to conducting LBD research.

The RCOE program and its investigators are collectively making remarkable contributions to our understanding of LBD and related disorders. For example, just in just over a year the investigators had nearly 165 manuscripts published. The following are those that reflect LBDA-supported research efforts:
