The Klein Lab is a leading neurobiology research facility at the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, located on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

Internationally-acclaimed discoveries at the Klein Lab have dramatically altered the landscape of Alzheimer's disease research and now provide a new basis for hope.

We are dedicated to discovering the cause and developing a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. To help meet these goals, we collaborate with other research teams around the globe.

Now, more than ever, there is real promise of early detection and treatment.

Your support of our vital work can turn this promise into a reality where our lab-to-clinic breakthroughs are able to restore the lives of patients, their families and caregivers.

Our Breakthrough

Our Need

Klein and colleagues identified the toxic molecule now regarded as the cause of Alzheimer's memory loss.

Promising advances continue to be made. There is now real hope.

Review our track record  

Lab research is costly . . . private gifting is essential to advance our ground-breaking discoveries.

Contribute to a proven and highly-skilled research

Here's why and how  

A new direction for Alzheimer’s research began with our idea that the path to dementia begins with an attack on brain cells by small memory-destroying toxins.
