NCI Clinical Research Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to its mission of discovering new and better ways to diagnose and treat neurocognitive and neuropsychiatric disorders. The foundation is comprised of a team of neuroscientists with expertise in cognitive neuroscience, functional neuroimaging, neuropharmacology and psychopharmacology, neuromodulation, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases, traumatic brain injury and the behavioral sciences.Below is a sample of some of the research topics being conducted at the NCI Clinical Research Foundation:

  • Identifying Alzheimer’s disease neuromarkers on functional brain mapping
  • Tracking connectivity changes in resting state fMRI in mild cognitive impairment to dementia
  • Identifying cortical networks abnormalities correlated with perseverations in Autism
  • Creating an Alzheimer’s disease probability and disease severity index
  • Developing a neurodegenerative disease probability index
  • Using non-invasive brain stimulation to treat cognitive, neurobehavioral and neuropsychiatric disorders
  • Biological and pharmacological treatments in Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases
  • Developing a biological assay to diagnosis delirium.
  • Training caregivers on managing neurobehavioral complications in patients with dementia
