The Gilmore-Bykovskyi Lab is committed to promoting effective, meaningful, and equitable care and research for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.Gilmore-Bykovskyi Lab Mission
About Our Lab
Led by Andrea Gilmore-Bykovskyi, PhD, RN, principal investigator, our team aims to advance this mission by investigating care, utilization, and research disparities for people living with and at risk for ADRD and their caregivers.
We are an interdisciplinary team composed of individuals with different perspectives, skills, and experiences, and we aim to partner with community stakeholders, people with dementia, and family caregivers to advance our mission. Our research is grounded in core values of the nursing discipline to maintain, protect, and promote human dignity, health and abilities, and social justice.
Lucidity in Dementia Study
Our lab is one of five teams in the U.S. funded by the National Institute on Aging to investigate lucid episodes in dementia that occur among people living with dementia in advanced disease stages.
Brain & Body Fitness Program
A partnership with Madison School & Community Recreation for older adults in the community, the program combines light exercise, brain health information, and mental activities designed to help strengthen physical and mental well-being as we age.
Brain Health Community Registry
The Brain Health Community Registry is a network that connects adults and caregivers interested in brain health with community-based services and researchers who study aging, brain health, and caregiving for people with memory changes.
