The Roskamp Institute is devoted to understanding causes and finding cures for neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders and addictions. Based in Sarasota, Florida, the Institute utilizes a broad range of scientific approaches to understand the causes and potential therapies for these diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The mission of The Roskamp Institute is to conduct scientific research to discover safe and effective new drug therapies to successfully treat diseases of the mind and to promote healthy aging.
Headed by Dr. Fiona Crawford, the institute employs experienced and interdisciplinary scientists and technicians and houses state-of-the-art research labs and equipment to conduct scientific research. The quality of research performed at the Institute reflects its motto: Better science. Real discovery.

The Harlin Center for Precision Medicine will present: A Precision Medicine Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)
A clinical application involves three key steps: 1) A genetic risk screening for the presence of specific mutations identified in gene-wide association (GWA) studies as playing a pathogenic role. 2) Detection of disease-associated abnormalities as early as possible (even preceding symptoms). 3) Prescription of explicit health-promoting interventions aimed at an individual’s molecular drivers of disease.
The Roskamp Institute will be hosting its annual Open House honoring veterans and military personnel on November 10.
This event, which is open to the public, will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m showcasing Institute research and clinical programs of particular relevance to veterans and military personnel.
