Service Cores

The Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center has eight cores. Each works simultaneously to support research initiatives on the IU School of Medicine—Indianapolis campus.

Administrative Core

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.

Clinical Core

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

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.

Neuropathology Core

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.

Neuroimaging Core

The Neuroimaging Core provides access to and collaborative support for the application of advanced neuroimaging in clinical and translational research.
