About Us / Welcome
The Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC) at the University of Pittsburgh was established in 1985 by a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), as a mechanism for integrating, coordinating and supporting research in Alzheimer's disease and aging. The ADRC performs and coordinates AD-related clinical and research activities and is a core source of support (e.g., resources, patients, tissue, expert consultation for research, clinical and training activities) regionally and nationally. Current research foci emphasize neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology, molecular genetics and epidemiology, basic neuroscience, and structural and functional imaging that aid in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
The ADRC is one of the nation’s leading research centers specializing in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Through outpatient evaluations, participants and their families receive state-of-the-art diagnostic assessments and contribute to the scientific study of Alzheimer’s disease.
Specific services at the ADRC include:
