Boston University Medical Center
The Boston University Alzheimer's Disease Center was established in 1996 and is in its third funding cycle. The Center is funded primarily by an Alzheimer's Disease Core Center (ADCC) grant from the National Institute on Aging and is one of 31 federally funded Alzheimer's Disease Centers nationwide. Our goal is to help reduce the human and economic costs associated with Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of knowledge.
The three primary missions of our Center are to:
Conduct and facilitate cutting-edge Alzheimer's disease research Enhance clinical care for Alzheimer's disease patients and their families Provide education regarding Alzheimer's disease to both professional and lay audiences in the greater Boston area and beyond
