The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation is an organization that provides millions of dollars for novel Alzheimer’s research primarily conducted by the late Nobel laureate Dr. Paul Greengard and his team of over 45 internationally renowned scientists at the Fisher Center lab at The Rockefeller University, plus other leading research institutes around the world.
The Fisher Center lab at The Rockefeller University is one of the largest and most modern scientific facilities in the world dedicated to solving the puzzle of Alzheimer’s disease.
Our mission is to understand the causes of Alzheimer’s disease; improve the care of people living with it – to enhance their quality of life, and find a cure.
Our vision is working towards a future when Alzheimer’s is nothing but a memory.
Philanthropists Zachary Fisher and David Rockefeller joined forces to establish the Fisher Center with the singular mission of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease through scientific discovery. The Center opened shortly after Zachary Fisher’s wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. His dream was to help discover the cure so others would not have to suffer through the ravages of this disease that he and his wife had to.
Our highly dedicated board provides invaluable leadership to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. That’s because every one of our trustees is passionate about our mission and focused on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s.
Our foundation is dedicated to fiscal responsibility, accountability, and transparency.
The majority of our funding goes to the Fisher Center Lab at The Rockefeller University under the interim leadership of Dr. Marc Flojolet. We also support other researchers around the globe that are working towards finding a cure.
