Our Doctors

Care and Treatment of Memory Disorders

Research Expertise from Bench to Bedside

At the Stanford Center for Memory Disorders, we are as passionate about research as we are about taking care of patients. Our research spans a full spectrum, from bench to bedside: In basic science labs, we investigate the fundamental causes of Alzheimer's disease and creating novel treatments. Other faculty study advanced neuroimaging technologies and lab-based studies of blood samples, in an effort to make early diagnosis possible. 

The same faculty members who care for patients also contribute to research on Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Stanford has numerous basic science labs investigating the fundamental causes of Alzheimer's disease and creating novel treatments. Our faculty brings advanced neuroimaging technologies and lab-based studies of blood samples to human research subjects in clinical trials, in an effort to make early diagnosis possible.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

For Health Care Professionals

Any patient with a progressive neurological syndrome that includes cognitive or behavioral symptoms is appropriate for referral. The earlier you refer a patient, the better. Patients with mild cognitive impairment may benefit the most from diagnosis and treatment, especially as emerging therapies become available. We see patients for one-time consultations, second opinions, and for longitudinal care.

Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics) provides comprehensive services to refer and track patients, as well as provides the latest information and news for physicians and office staff. For help with all referral needs and questions visit Referring Physicians.

HOW TO REFER

  • Call us at 650-723-6469 to refer a patient.
  • Before we see a patient, it is helpful (but not necessary) to test thyroid function (TSH and T4) and serum B12, and to have obtained magnetic resonance brain imaging.
  • Any prior brain imaging (films or CD) should be hand-carried to the appointment.

Track your patients' progress and communicate with Stanford providers securely online.
