In this post, I link to and excerpt from the web page “DEMENTIA RESEARCH AND CLINICAL TRIALS-Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers” From The National Institute Of Aging [accessed 6-5-2023].
All that follows is from the above web page.
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) funds 33 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRCs) at major medical institutions across the United States. Researchers at these Centers are working to translate research advances into improved diagnosis and care for people with Alzheimer’s disease, as well as working to find a treatment or way to prevent Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. In addition, NIA funds four Exploratory ADRCs that are designed to expand and diversify research and education opportunities to new areas of the country, new populations, and new areas of science and approaches to research.
For people and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, the ADRCs offer:
- Help with obtaining diagnosis and medical management
- Information about Alzheimer’s and related dementias, services, and resources
- Opportunities for volunteers to participate in clinical trials and studies and research registries
- Support groups and other special programs for volunteers and their families
