The mission of the Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation is to eradicate Alzheimer disease and related dementias through the support of scientists whose aim is to achieve this objective.
About The Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation
Founded in 2005, Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation (PARF) is a registered Canadian charity devoted to supporting research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of Alzheimer disease and related dementias.
In 2006, the BC provincial government entrusted PARF with $15 Million to further this mission. Over the past twelve years, PARF has quietly funded 35 leading edge Alzheimer and dementia research projects conducted by British Columbia scientists.
With over a decade of experience in funding dementia research, Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation is a trusted name, in the dementia research community. Our experience with the provincial government, hospitals, post secondary institutes and funding partners has placed PARF in a unique position. We work with these key stakeholders, but we are not tied to any one organization or their administration costs. This allows us to be flexible and fund the projects we see the greatest value in meeting our mission.
