COVID-19 Update

As of March 16, all research visits were suspended for the studies run through the CU Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center. Consistent with University guidelines, the Center is starting a phased return of research studies. At this time, participants currently enrolled in our studies that require a follow-up visit are being contacted for scheduling. New recruitment for studies is still suspended at this time, but we will provide updates as soon as we have moved to the next phase.  If you have any questions, please contact the CU Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center at 303-724-7670 or CUAlz@cuanschutz.edu.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to adapt to this rapidly evolving situation. As always, our patients’ and our research participants’ safety is of the utmost importance to us, and we will always put that first. In the coming weeks and months, we will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and will update our research studies and clinical practices accordingly. We look forward to resuming normal operating procedures as soon as possible. In the meantime, please follow the CDC guidelines and stay safe.


The Colorado Aging Brain Lab is composed of a team of researchers dedicated to understanding the neuroscience of the aging brain through an array of observational studies. As a part of the CU Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical campus, the goal of our laboratory is to better understand what puts us at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, as well as what protects us from Alzheimer’s disease. We believe we have as much to learn from individuals who are healthy and have no symptoms of a memory disorder as we do from individuals who are experiencing cognitive decline as they grow older.
