Mayo Clinic staff actively research frontotemporal dementia and related conditions. Researchers study risk factors, causes, diagnostic techniques and treatment options for frontotemporal dementia.

The Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, jointly based at Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota Florida, is one of more than 30 Alzheimer's disease research centers in the United States designated and funded by the National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health.

Researchers in the center study frontotemporal dementia, Alzheimer's disease and related conditions. You may have the opportunity to participate in trials in the center. Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona is part of the Arizona Alzheimer's Consortium, a statewide research collaboration.
