The Brain Aging Network for Cognitive Health (BRANCH) study aims to understand the complex biological, genetic, and lifestyle factors that underlie differential aging trajectories. Our program aims to enroll hundreds of older adults, who participate in a variety of procedures including blood draws, neuropsychological testing, and neurological exams. The overarching goals are to gain a better understanding of what healthy aging is and identify the earliest changes associated with degenerative brain disease.
