Discoveries Are Made Everyday

Since opening its doors in 2003, The Roskamp Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has been a leader in the global effort to better understand and treat diseases of the mind. The foundation for the Institute’s work was set more than a decade ago by the Institute’s two lead researchers, Drs. Michael Mullan and Fiona Crawford.

They were key members of a pioneering team of scientists who, in the early 1990s, discovered that the onset of Alzheimer’s was, among other things, directly related to the accumulation of a protein called ß-amyloid.
