Founded in 2005, the Goizueta Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) is one of 27 active centers in the nation supported by the National Institutes of Health. The goal of these centers is to bring scientists together to facilitate their research and help learn more about Alzheimer’s and related diseases. We are also committed to the education of health care professionals, persons with Alzheimer’s disease, their families, and our community to aid in understanding, diagnosis and treatment of these illnesses. Memory, the ability of the brain to store, retain, and subsequently recall information is key to understanding Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Research is crucial to gain more information about disease, provide better care, and ultimately, prevent the burden of neurological diseases for future generations. One particular area of interest of the Goizueta ADRC is a better understanding of mild cognitive impairment and early diagnosis and treatment of memory disorders.
