About Us

The Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center (IADC) is just about to complete the 26th year of its existence. Over these years, the IADC has contributed significantly to the field of dementia by the characterization of new diseases, the discovery of novel genetic mutations and characterization of the associated disease processes, and the production and characterization of transgenic animal models.

These contributions have been greatly impacted by the growth of the Center in functionality through the addition of cores as well as new faculty and staff.
