Alzheimer’s Research

After Cynthia Mitchell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 2002, the Mitchell Foundation began funding research aimed at developing treatments and finding a cure for this devastating disease. To date, these gifts have exceeded $12 million. Grants have supported:

  • The establishment of the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research at The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston.
  • The Drug Discovery and Development Program at UTMB to accelerate new drugs in the fight against Alzheimer's Disease, and clinical research that will lead to earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease.
  • The George P. and Cynthia W. Mitchell Center for Research in Alzheimer's Disease and Related Brain Disorders at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.
  • The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Endowed Research Fund in Alzheimer's Disease at Baylor College of Medicine.
