Mission of the Penn ADRC

The mission of the Penn Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) is to increase research and education on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and its links to related dementias (ADRD) across the continuum of normal aging to dementia with the goal of identifying the causes of and cures for AD/ADRD. To achieve this, the Penn ADRC coordinates research programs, stimulates new research directions, provides community education and outreach, academic research training, and fosters the development of novel techniques to individualize diagnoses and treatments for the benefit of all older adults and their families.


In Loving Memory of Murray Grossman, M.D., Ed.D

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our friend and colleague, Murray Grossman, MDCM, EdD, who passed away peacefully on April 4. Dr. Grossman was an extraordinary physician, scientist, and mentor and his contributions to the field of neurology, especially Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and related dementias was tremendous. We are grateful to have worked alongside him and he will be truly missed.
