The Brain Bank and a network of researchers share the common goals of finding a cure, improving diagnostic tools and treatment options, and providing education to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia disorders. The Florida Alzheimer’s Disease Brain Bank is a service and research oriented network of statewide regional sites. Currently, only a brain autopsy at the time of death can provide confirmation that an individual suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. The intent of the brain bank program is to study brains of persons clinically diagnosed with dementia and provide tissue for research after their deaths. Brain donation is one very important way of confirming the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, and it is crucial in the effort to learn more about diagnosing and treating Alzheimer’s.
