At Banner Health, we not only provide advanced neurology care for our patients, we also take part in clinical and medical advances in neurosciences. Because we’re a sponsor and participant in research programs locally, regionally and nationally, Banner Health patients have access to up-to-date trials for neurological treatment.
Banner Health researchers piloted landmark positron emission tomography (PET) that showed early brain changes in people at genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease -- almost 50 years before those people may begin to experience memory and thinking problems. The study results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The same researchers lead the Banner Alzheimer's Institute, which is involved in clinical trials.
Banner Sun Health Research Institute is internationally known for its research in age-related disorders, offers clinical trials in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
