The Maier Insitute is committed to clinical research related to the causes, management and treatment of dementia and other brain disorders. Focused research at the Institute includes:  

Clinical Trials

The Maier Institute combines cutting-edge research with patient care to ensure our patients receive the very best treatments. As a result, Maier Institute faculty are active in seeking out and participating in clinical trials aimed at treating dementia. For more information on our ongoing clinical trials, click here.


Rational benzodiazepine avoidance and deprescribing

One of the Maier Institute’s primary areas of research focus is the effect of benzodiazepine usage on geriatric patients and patients with dementia. Our early work explores the prevalence of these drugs in elderly populations and how their use effects hospitalization rates and lengths of stay.
