Nancy's Legacy

All donations to the Nancy Imlay Edwards Foundation go directly to organizations that are making a major contribution to finding as cure for Alzheimer's and to the comfort of patients, like Nancy, who have this so far incurable disease.

We were extremely lucky to have Nancy's diagnosis and early medical treatment at the University of California, Irvine’s Institute of Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders where a very high level of brain research is being conducted.

The UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND) is internationally recognized for its research accomplishments in age-related brain disorders. UCI MIND is the University’s center for aging and dementia research, with our faculty seeking to understand the causes leading to neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s diseasefrontotemporal dementiaLewy body dementia, and Huntington’s disease.

For more than 30 years, UCI MIND has been at the forefront of Alzheimer’s disease research. It is home to one of 30 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRC) funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and one of 10 California Alzheimer’s Disease Centers funded by the California Department of Public Health.
