Dr. Kukull's research is focused on the neurodegenerative, vascular and other conditions causing dementia and cognitive impairment. These conditions include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's/Lewy body disease, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, and cerebrovascular disease. Since 1999, he has served as Director and PI of the National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center [U01AG016976], an effort to collect and make available to researchers standardized, detailed clinical data from the approximately 30 NIA-funded Alzheimer Disease Centers across the United States. Dr. Kukull works closely with the leadership of the ADRCs and the National Institute on Aging to ensure that scientifically relevant and valid data are obtained and available from our database to any researcher anywhere. In addition to NACC work, he is an investigator with a number of other NIH grants.
