The objective of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)-Quest Dementia Project is to improve the delivery of primary care for dementia by creating a care delivery value chain (CDVC) pathway focused on diagnostics and outcome measurements. The project uniquely leverages the strengths of UCSF dementia discovery and clinical research together with Quest Diagnostics' unparalleled logistic network of patients and providers to facilitate studies and advanced health IT technologies to accelerate early-stage findings. This is the first major project under a broad collaboration agreement between UCSF and Quest to accelerate the translation of biomedical research into advanced diagnostics tools for improved patient care.

Presenters:
June Lee, Director of Early Translational Research at Clinical and Translational Science Institute and Professor, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco
Michael Geschwind, Associate Professor of Neurology, Steering Committee Member of UCSF-Quest collaboration in Dementia
