Our Mission

The general objective of the ADRC at Columbia University is to tackle the main barriers in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, which include early detection, prevention, and intervention. In mobilizing towards this ambitious objective, the ADRC:

  • Supports an infrastructure for research,
  • Fosters interdisciplinary collaborations,
  • Provides a rich training environment, and
  • Promotes patient and community outreach, recruitment and education.

More globally, the ADRC participates in all national coordinating efforts and works together with other institutions that collectively share our objective.
