The center links clinical and pathological data on each case. It encourages donations from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's patients, as well as healthy older people, and maintains a registry of more than 800 live donors. All brain tissue is procured, stored, and distributed according to applicable regulations and guidelines involving consent, protection of human subjects and donor anonymity. Brain tissue specimens are provided to researchers in academia and industry. Researchers may apply online; review usually requires three to six weeks.
