Institute Presentation

Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and the Alzheimer Centre Nijmegen

The NILVAD team in Nijmegen is part of the department of Geriatrics of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and the Alzheimer Centre Nijmegen. Our research focuses on development of interventions in the elderly, with special focus on cognitive decline. As such we carried out several randomized trials, on exercise, nutrition, occupational therapy, and diagnostics and guidance by general practitioners versus medical specialists in dementia patients. Our group also studies biomarkers on dementia, both in CSF and in cerebrovascular autoregulation.

Our scientific research is intricately connected to care, which facilitates innovation and exchange of ideas. We receive around 300 patients a year at our memory clinic.
