About Us / ADRC Mission
The overall objective of the ADRC is to study the pathophysiology (changes in the brain) of Alzheimer's disease (AD) with the aim of improving the reliability of diagnosis of AD and developing effective treatment strategies. The ADRC is funded by the National Institute on Aging and, as part of its research program, provides a comprehensive outpatient evaluation including medical, neurological, psychiatric, social, and cognitive assessments.
The success of the ADRC depends upon scientists, clinicians, patients and families working together with a shared commitment to AD research. A major focus of the ADRC is to match participating patients and their family members with opportunities to volunteer for additional AD-related studies based on their interests and the eligibility requirements of the research.
