University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, NC

The Research Center of Excellence is affiliated with the UNC Memory Disorders Program, based in the department of Neurology. A primary focus of this integrated clinical, research and educational program has been on non-Alzheimer’s dementias, with special emphasis on Lewy body dementia (LBD) and Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD). Current activities include participating in NIH-funded research studies for LBD and FTD patients, as well as a wide array of investigational therapeutic trials. We are fortunate to have a dedicated LBD caregiver support group as part of our program, as well as an online caregiver group, LBD NC, to provide a support network for LBD caregivers throughout North Carolina.
