About the ADRC

To achieve our goal of increasing research and education on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, the Penn ADRC coordinates research programs, stimulates new research, catalyzes academic research training, provides community education and outreach and fosters the development of novel techniques to individualize diagnosis and treatment for the benefit of all elderly persons and their families. 

We achieve this through our nine highly interrelated Cores and Components:

  • Administrative Core
  • Clinical Core
  • Data Management and Statistical Core
  • Neuropathology Core
  • Outreach, Recruitment and Engagement Core
  • Biomarker Core
  • Genomics Core
  • Neuroimaging Core
  • Research Education Component
