At the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC), we conduct and facilitate both clinical studies and laboratory science. Clinical research studies in both healthy elders and those with cognitive difficulties focus on observational and epidemiological data that provide hints about risk factors, and work on testing potential treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Laboratory studies concentrate on discovering the underlying mechanisms of the pathology of AD in order to expand our understanding of the illness and meaningfully inform the development of new therapies. The ADRC also welcomes data requests from other researchers interested in using our resources for their work.
Our current research activities and data request guidelines are as follows:
Clinical Trials: The ADRC conducts several types of clinical research for healthy elders and those with memory disorders, focusing on observational and epidemiological data.
Translational Science: Laboratory studies at the ADRC predominantly focus on the underlying mechanisms of AD.
Data Guidelines: The ADRC provides helpful guidelines for researchers interested in requesting data, tissue, and other resources.
