Cross-Cultural Study on Young-Onset Dementia

Dr. Rascovsky facilitates a cross-cultural, international collaborative study in young-onset dementia (YOD) through a clinical research collaboration between the Memory Clinic at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Colombia (MCIA) and the University of Pennsylvania's Frontotemporal Degeneration Center (PFTDC). This work will help MCIA build research capacity by developing and implementing standardized methods of clinical assessment, imaging, genetics, and data handling, analysis and transfer. This partnership will contribute to the diagnosis and management of YOD in Colombia and Latin America more broadly.
