Mission Statement

The mission of the Roena B. Kulynych Center for Memory and Cognition Research is to support research in dementia and memory loss from the perspective of geriatricians.

The Center focuses on the prevention of progressive illnesses by proactively promoting geriatrician-specific research.

Purpose

The purpose of The Roena Kulynych Center for Memory and Cognition Research is to find new and improved methods identifying older adults at high risk for dementia and to design treatments for preventing physical disability at an early stage in their disease.

In addition, the center will develop better ways for understanding specific patterns of memory loss and the appropriate medication and other behavioral forms of treatment that would best treat specific types of memory impairment and their associated complications.

Finally, a central goal of the Center is to translate new knowledge about preventing and treating memory loss from the research setting to the patient and to the physician trainees and medical students caring for patients through teaching programs based at the Wake Forest School of Medicine.
