Welcome to the home page of the Center for Imaging of Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIND), located at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center campus of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
Our Center, which now has its own 10,000 sq foot facility with 2 research MRIs, is a group of over 60 UCSF faculty, postdoctoral fellows, computer programmers, MRI technicans, and other staff who use MRI and other techniques to study the changes in the brain which occur in normal aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
The overall theme of our Center is to use the most advanced brain imaging technology, especially MRI, to investigate the cause, progression, and effects of neurodegenerative diseases, and to develop effective treatments, diagnoses, and methods for early detection and prevention.
This website describes our overall research objectives, our specific research grants including recent results and publications, our talented and excited personnel, job opportunities of all types, as well as directions and contact information.
