Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ARDC)- University of Virginia Satellite

The ADRC Satellite at the University of Virginia was established in 2010. The focus of the ADRC Satellite is on increasing the representation of rural African Americans in research as well as providing evaluation and follow-up to patients and control subjects followed in the Memory and Aging Care Clinic at UVA and enrolled in the ADRC Registry. Major goals include working collaboratively with rural community partners to bring awareness of Alzheimer’s disease in this population, as well as, offering clinical trials to a population often underrepresented in dementia research. Dr. Steven DeKosky serves as the Director and Dr. Carol Manning serve as co-director. Key personnel include: Drs. Erin Foff and Steven DeKosky, neurologists, Dr. Ishan Williams, recruitment/enrollment coordinator; Dr. Carol Manning, neuropsychologist and Director of the Memory and Aging Care Clinic , Colleen Webber, clinical trials coordinator, Lisa Opie, neuropsychometrician, and several neuropsychology fellows.
