Welcome to the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center

Alzheimer’s disease affects more than 5 million Americans today—more than 110,000 in the state of Wisconsin alone. The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) is working to change that. Through generous funding by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institutes of Health, the Wisconsin ADRC supports researchers in their pursuit of answers that will lead to improved diagnosis and care for patients while, at the same time, focusing on the program’s long-term goal—finding a way to cure and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

Investigators at the Wisconsin ADRC conduct basic, clinical, and behavioral research. The Center also offers training to scientists and health care providers who are new to Alzheimer’s research. In addition, through the generosity of its study volunteers, the Center is able to share data and research results with researchers around the country who are also studying this disease.

For patients and families affected by AD, the Wisconsin ADRC provides:

  • Help with obtaining diagnosis and medical management
  • Information about the disease, services, and resources
  • Opportunities for volunteers to participate in Alzheimer’s-related research studies.
