The Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center has eight cores. Each works simultaneously to support research initiatives on the IU School of Medicine—Indianapolis campus.
The Administrative Core of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center provides the infrastructure needed for planning and implementing all activities aimed at fulfilling the overall mission of the center.
The Clinical Core provides researchers with high quality clinical, imaging, biomarker and neuropathological data in Alzheimer’s disease and hereditary dementias to improve early detection of neurodegenerative diseases.
Data Core members provide crucial data management support for all research activities conducted by the center’s multidisciplinary investigator team, including data storage, statistical analysis, training and mentoring.
Integrating molecular technology to assist in the neuropathologic diagnosis, the Neuropathology Core provides information about pathologic data to referring physicians and families as well as well-characterized tissue to basic researchers.
Outreach and Recruitment Core
The Outreach and Recruitment Core administers community outreach and recruitment programs to advance awareness of the critically important role of participating in research at the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center.
Research Education Core
The Research Education Core develops new researchers specifically trained to discover innovative approaches to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
The Neuroimaging Core provides access to and collaborative support for the application of advanced neuroimaging in clinical and translational research.
