Alzheimer’s disease and the other dementias are complex multisystem disorders that impact the person at multiple levels (e.g., cognitive, physical, psychological, social) and, therefore, require an interdisciplinary approach to both research and care. The UCI Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) integrates clinical and basic science investigators from a variety of disciplines into a comprehensive research team that is organized into five components:
Creating a focal point for research on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias at UCI, the UCI ADRC brings together investigators from Neurology, Pathology, Statistics, Neurobiology and Behavior, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Cognitive Sciences, Anatomy and Neurobiology, Chemistry, Geriatric Medicine, Physiology and Biophysics, and the Center for Learning and Memory.
