Information about our center

Alzheimercentrum Erasmus MC’ is a diagnostic dementia center located at the Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam. In this center we combine patient care with scientific research in order to contribute to dementia care. We aspire to contribute to earlier diagnosis setting as well as the development of future therapeutic interventions for all types of dementia.

Research lines within our center focus on genetics and neuroimaging of different types of dementia, with a special focus on frontotemporal dementia and Lewy body dementia. One of our major research lines involves research into the presymptomatic phase of frontotemporal dementia, by which we hope to contribute to the knowledge of underlying disease mechanisms and progression.

We are involved in several international initiatives through European research grants (Joint Programme for Neurodegenerative Diseases, JPND), research consortia (GENFI, Lewy Body Dementia consortium), and international clinical trials.
