Our Mission

The KU Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center is one of only 33 centers nationally designated by the National Institute on Aging. We bring access to direct care, research studies and strategies to support brain health to our community and our region.

Bringing that mission to life requires diverse input and community engagement; we will not solve this puzzle alone, but we will solve it.

With effective treatments and preventions, Alzheimer's disease is curable. The work we do together—in labs, clinics, gyms and kitchens—advances the cause and moves us closer to a cure.
