About Us

The UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND) is internationally recognized for its research accomplishments in disorders of the brain, particularly those that are age-related. UCI MIND is the University’s center for aging and dementia research, with our faculty seeking to understand the causes leading to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, and Huntington’s disease.

For those suffering from age-related memory problems, our goal is to develop improved means for effective diagnosis and treatment and to provide help to families and caregivers. UCI MIND is home to one of 31 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers funded by the National Institute on Aging and is also one of 10 California Alzheimer’s Disease Centers.
