A worldwide crisis

Alzheimer's disease is predicted to affect 130 million people in the next three decades. Heartbreakingly, as of today, not one drug can prevent, cure or permanently reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Not one.

Its toll is staggering on individuals and their caregivers, destroying personalities, memories and lives. Ending the suffering from Alzheimer’s is what drives our scientists and our entire organization to find treatments and cures for the disease — now.

It's possible…
with your help.

All the pieces are in place. The world is waiting. Will you help speed the discovery of therapies for Alzheimer’s by giving to JAX?

Ending Alzheimer's

Imagine stopping Alzheimer’s disease before it erases memories, personalities and lives.

New treatments, applied early to people identified as most vulnerable, could eliminate Alzheimer’s. Genomic technologies have the potential to help stop Alzheimer’s disease before it develops. No one else in the world has the unique advantages of The Jackson Laboratory to do it.
