Information About Research
The University of California, Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center (UCD ADC) conducts many different kinds of research studies. Many involve trying to describe and understand the behavioral and mental changes which occur with dementing illness. Some studies involve potential new treatments, or ways of preventing mental loss. Other studies involve genetics or studies of basic biologic processes related to Alzheimer's disease. Other sections of this page describe our research program in more detail. You can also find here a list of our investigators, and a list of scientific Publications which the Center has produced. Most of the participants in our studies are people who we have seen and evaluated at our clinics. However, some studies require volunteers from the community. If you are interested in participating in a research study, visit the section on Research Projects to find information on experimental drug studies. You can also contact our Research Coordinators. Support for researchers is described in Research Resources for Investigators.
