The Indiana Alzheimer's Disease Research Center provides strategic planning, management, resources, and oversight for the center in support of its continued mission. This core oversees, manages and monitors the quality of center activities and functions to strengthen and improve links between faculty, community leaders and external organizations. The significance of this role is based on the compelling national plan to prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer disease by 2025 through innovative research on etiology, early detection, and therapeutics.
The Administrative Core is responsible for overall management and strategic direction of the Indiana Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. Leadership within the center has been extremely stable. In 2013, the center made a smooth transition to the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences after Andrew Saykin, PsyD, was appointed center director. Brad Glazier, center administrator since 1999, continues in this important role.
