ADRC Research Projects
The Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRC) throughout the nation are working to translate research advances into improved diagnosis and care for Alzheimer’s disease patients while simultaneously pursuing improved treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of dementia.
Toward these goals, the UCI ADRC supports three major projects during each 5-year funding cycle. Additionally, two pilot projects are funded annually in the amount of $30,000. The mission of these pilot projects is to stimulate new and innovative research relevant to Alzheimer’s disease. The pilot projects must be of high scientific quality and have a strong likelihood of subsequent extramural funding. Types of research can range from basic science to clinical and neuroimaging. Proposed research may involve humans, animals, or in vitro studies.
