The Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center at the IU School of Medicine is accelerating the fight to end Alzheimer’s by facilitating shared research in Alzheimer’s disease and other related disorders.
Every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is expected to rise over the next 20 years. At the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center at the Indiana University School of Medicine, we’re here to make a difference. With more than 30 active studies and clinical trials, we are accelerating the fight to end Alzheimer’s for the next generation.
The mission of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center is to serve as a resource to facilitate research in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders and to distinguish them from normal aging. The IADC works to translate research advances into improved diagnosis and care for people with Alzheimer’s disease while focusing on the program’s long-term goal—finding a way to cure and ultimately prevent Alzheimer's disease.
Areas of investigation range from the basic mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease to advanced brain imaging for early detection to managing the symptoms and helping families cope with the effects of the disease. Center staff conducts basic, clinical, and behavioral research and train scientists and health care providers.
