Support our fight against Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias

In the lab and clinic, the Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center is working to help families and patients understand and cope with the challenges associated with memory loss and dementia. In recent years, the Center has pushed forward on promising research, launched a wellness initiative and worked collaboratively to link patients and families, as well as clinicians and scientists, with important resources.

The MADC experts see enormous opportunity along several research paths. Our clinicians and scientists lead inquiries into disease mechanisms, possible treatments, better diagnosis, and wellness.  At the same time, the MADC is deeply committed to improving the lives of patients with memory loss or dementia and their families through our wellness and educational outreach programs.   Yes, much more work is needed. But the future is bright, and brimming with promise.
