Alzheimer's Disease Centers program directory.

The National Institute on Aging funds Alzheimer's Disease Centers (ADCs) at major medical institutions across the Nation. Researchers at these Centers are working to translate research advances into improved diagnosis and care for Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients while, at the same time, focusing on the program's long-term goal--finding a way to cure and possibly prevent AD.

Areas of investigation range from the basic mechanisms of AD to managing the symptoms and helping families cope with the effects of the disease. Center staff conduct basic, clinical, and behavioral research and train scientists and health care providers who are new to AD research.

Although each center has its own unique area of emphasis, a common goal of the ADCs is to enhance research on AD by providing a network for sharing new ideas as well as research results. Collaborative studies draw upon the expertise of scientists from many different disciplines.

Some ADCs have satellite facilities, which offer diagnostic and treatment services and research opportunities in underserved, rural, and minority communities.

For patients and families affected by AD, the ADCs offer:

* Diagnosis and medical management (costs may vary--centers may accept Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance).

* Information about the disease, services, and resources.

* Opportunities for volunteers to participate in drug trials, support groups, clinical research projects, and other special programs for volunteers and their families.

Two national AD resources are listed at the end of the directory. The National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center coordinates data collection and fosters collaborative research among the ADCs. The National Cell Repository for Alzheimer's Disease maintains a database of family histories and medical records and provides genetic researchers with cell lines and/or DNA samples.

For the most current listing of the ADCs, visit the ADEAR Center's website: www.nia.nih.alzheimers.
