Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Alzheimer’s Disease Disparities (CIRAD)

The thematic focus of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Alzheimer’s Disease Disparities (CIRAD) is biological, behavioral, sociocultural, and environmental mechanisms of ADRD disparities, including risk and resilience factors, biomarkers, and caregiving.

We provide sustained mentoring and career development, support for pilot studies, training in health disparities, and interdisciplinary collaboration to investigators from under-represented backgrounds who are pursuing ADRD research, and to support and accelerate research on the biological, behavioral, sociocultural, and environmental mechanisms of ADRD disparities so that they can be narrowed or eliminated.
