Healthy Brain Aging Initiative Excellence Fund

Now is the time to change how science and society think about aging, cognitive and mental disease, and lifelong brain fitness.

The loss of brain health commonly associated with aging can be devastating. Beyond the personal toll on patients and their families, deteriorating cognitive and mental health affects all of us and represents a substantial challenge to our healthcare system and societal safety nets.

Gifts to the UC Davis Healthy Brain Aging Initiative Excellence Fund will advance novel approaches to optimize brain health from birth. We will drive new discoveries in the science of brain development and aging that translate to game-changing early interventions and treatments to improve brain health across the lifespan.

With targeted education and outreach programs, UC Davis will be the go-to resource for understanding and enhancing brain resilience throughout life.

Healthy Brain Aging Initiative is one of UC Davis' Big Ideas, which are the centerpieces of the university's second comprehensive campaign to support transformative new programs.
