Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center (ADCC)

The main objective of this research project is to provide a comprehensive clinical database of patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other forms of dementia, individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and age-matched normal controls. The study will also attempt to identify cognitively normal individuals at genetically defined risk for Alzheimer’s disease through genetic screening.

All participants are seen annually. Autopsies to establish diagnoses in patients with dementia, patients with mild MCI, and cognitively normal elderly control subjects will also be conducted.

Open and enrolling subjects.
