Cleveland Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (CADRC)
The Cleveland Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, supported by a two-year NIH grant, will bring together top researchers and clinicians from University Hospitals, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center and the MetroHealth System. CADRC focuses on accelerating research for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
Particular areas of focus for the center will be atypical Alzheimer's disease (e.g. "rapidly progressive"), Lewy body dementia, healthy individuals at risk for developing dementia, and underserved populations. In addition to community outreach, the center will develop infrastructure and support for promising new investigators and promote the translation of findings from the laboratory to new therapeutics for these devastating diseases.
