Toffler Scholar Program

The Alzheimer’s Center at Temple University integrates research, training, clinical, and educational activities in order to study the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, discover the mechanisms responsible for their onset and progression, and develop effective treatment strategies with the ultimate goal of curing those diseases.

The Toffler Scholar Program provides crucial early-stage funding and network support for researchers at Temple University’s Alzheimer’s Center. Researchers are chosen to become Toffler Scholars due to their innovative thinking and research excellence.

“As the Alzheimer’s Center at Temple University continues to blaze new trails in the fight against this devastating disease, their discoveries are made possible thanks to the generosity of philanthropic supporters like the Karen Toffler Charitable Trust. The Trust’s belief and investment in our Alzheimer’s Center work is helping to reach the breakthroughs in Alzheimer’s research that will ultimately defeat it.”
