Alzheimer's Prevention Initiative

Explore the new era of prevention research launched by Banner Alzheimer's Institute

The Alzheimer’s Prevention Initiative (API) has ignited a new era of Alzheimer’s research focusing on prevention. 

Championed and led by Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, API is an international collaborative formed to launch a new era of Alzheimer’s prevention research by evaluating the most promising therapies in cognitively normal people who – based on age and genetic background – are at highest risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease symptoms as quickly as possible.

The goal of API is to identify pre-symptomatic treatments or interventions that will postpone, slow or prevent the disease’s progression.

API’s scientists, researchers and physicians collaborate with partners throughout the world and with the Arizona Alzheimer’s Consortium and the Collaboration for Alzheimer’s Prevention on:

  • Prevention trials
  • Biomarker studies
  • Registries
