Attacking Alzheimer's through research

The University of Kansas Alzheimer's Disease Center (KU ADC) is a National Institute of Aging designated and funded Alzheimer's Disease Center. Researchers at centers with this elite designation are working to translate research advances into improved diagnoses and care for Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients while trying to find a way to cure and possibly prevent AD.

Each center has its own unique area of emphasis. The KU ADC emphasizes the research areas of mitochondrial genomics, metabolism and neuroimaging. The KU ADC has successfully developed and recruited leading researchers from around the country who are applying state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques and are advancing research in cell metabolism (energy production) in older adults. Collaborative studies draw upon the expertise of scientists from many different disciplines. The people of Johnson County, KS support space for the KU ADC through the Johnson County Education Research Triangle initiative.

The mission of the KU Alzheimer's Disease Center is to promote healthy brain aging and strategies to prevent Alzheimer's disease.
