The National Institute on Aging (NIA) website offers information about the science of healthy aging, and Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD). NIA scientists and other experts review the content of this website before it is published to ensure that it is evidence-based, accurate, authoritative, and up to date.

The website is a service of NIA, managed by two related public information centers: the NIA Information Center and the Alzheimer’s and related Dementias Information and Referral (ADEAR) Center.

This website includes information on health topics of interest to older adults; information on NIA research programs, funding opportunities, training, and resources; news about NIA-supported research; a public database that allow users to search for Alzheimer’s and related clinical trials; and a public database that allows users to search for Alzheimer’s clinical trials recruitment resources.

Information about NIA-supported research is provided in several ways, including: press releases, featured research, the AD+ADRD Research Implementation Milestones, and the Inside NIA blog. This information is reviewed by subject matter experts and updated regularly.
