Dementia Research and Clinical Trials

Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers

The National Institute on Aging funds Alzheimer's Disease Centers (ADCs) 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 finding a way to cure and possibly prevent Alzheimer's.

For patients and families affected by Alzheimer's disease, the ADCs offer:

  • Help with obtaining diagnosis and medical management (costs may vary—Centers may accept Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance)
  • Information about the disease, services, and resources
  • Opportunities for volunteers to participate in clinical trials and studies and patient registries
  • Support groups and other special programs for volunteers and their families
