Welcome To The University of Washington Alzheimer's Disiease Research Center

We know that there are many more questions than answers when it comes to Alzheimer’s disease, and the UW ADRC is proactively trying to change that. At our Center we are investigating the basic biological processes underlying Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders. It is our hope that together with the commitment of our dedicated research team and volunteer participants, we will be able to improve the functioning of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and improve the quality of life of both patients and caregivers. Although the questions of Alzheimer’s disease are daunting, it is our priority to find helpful answers through discovering the causes, effective treatments, and prevention strategies for Alzheimer’s disease.

In this website you will find information about our current clinical trials, overviews about research participation and procedures, explanations about research at our Center, and a comprehensive calendar of upcoming community events. We hope that the resources you need are here, but if you would like further information, please call our Center.
