Tissue Donation

  • In order to better understand and fight the disease, our research involves looking at tissue from patients with AD. Often we use blood samples, but some of our studies require samples of brain and spinal cord tissue. We have an active tissue donation program which permits AD patients to donate brain and spinal cord tissue after death, to be used for research.
  • We are extremely grateful to the individuals who have participated in this program. All donated tissue is handled with the utmost respect and care.
  • This program is offered free of charge to anyone willing to help. Any fees that arise will be covered in full by the research funds. Those interested in obtaining more information about this program should contact Dr. David Gill at 717-531-8692.
