The Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center provides infrastructure for Alzheimer's disease research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At any one time, we are supporting work on about 50 different research studies. The Wisconsin ADRC maintains a pool of research volunteers, a repository of cognitive test data, brain tissue samples, cerebral spinal fluid samples, and brain scans. Scientists from UW-Madison, or anywhere in the world, can apply to access this information and use it in their research.
The Wisconsin ADRC also hosts an annual Alzheimer's Disease & Related Disorders Research Day for researchers and students on campus, organizes an educational lecture series for scientists, and offers training and mentoring for young doctors and researchers who study Alzheimer's disease and aging.
