UWF researchers at the forefront of Alzheimer’s, dementia research

The number of those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia continues to rise as the baby boom generation ages. Researchers at the University of West Florida are actively involved in not only battling the devastating effects of those conditions, but also finding new methods of early detection and helping those who must care for those affected.

“This research is contributing important knowledge toward controlling and mitigating the effects of the extensive and debilitating diseases related to cognitive decline,” said Dr. Matthew Schwartz, assistant vice president of research administration at UWF. “University research and development are a vital part of developing better treatments and even cures for these diseases. UWF researchers are a part of that.”

Greetings Alumni and Friends,

We are thrilled to offer the University of West Florida’s 2018-2019 Research Annual Report and share some of the noteworthy impacts being made this year by our researchers. Research is housed in the Division of Research and Strategic Innovation. This new division was formed in January 2017 by President Martha Saunders to shine a light on the culture of research, the economy, workforce, strategic partnerships and strategic higher education innovation. Our team of big-thinkers, business experts and radical innovators strives to provide solutions that make a lasting, positive impact on the social, economic and technological landscape in the communities we serve.

UWF’s research is impactful within our community as well as to the far reaches of the globe. Strategically, we have several areas of focus including multidisciplinary research, research visibility and the ongoing connections to industry for collaborative research and student and faculty engagement.

Thank you for your support of UWF research!
