Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer's Center is one of four newly-minted exploratory Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers (ADRC) funded by an NIA P20 grant. The P20 grant awards are designed to allow programs to build capacity as they work towards becoming a full P30-funded ADRC. Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer's Center fills an important service gap in the southeastern U.S. and makes key research contributions to the ADRC network.
The exploratory Vanderbilt Alzheimer's Disease Research Center will bring together dozens of faculty and departments across Vanderbilt's campus to characterize the complex pathways of Alzheimer's disease, identify markers of risk and resilience, and discover new avenues for treatment and prevention.
