The Alzheimer''s Disease Center (ADC) is one of 32 centers funded by the National Institute on Aging to evaluate patients and to conduct scientific research into the cause(s) of Alzheimer''s disease. At UT Southwestern, an interdisciplinary research team pools its talents to study the nature of Alzheimer''s disease from many vantage points. The ADC has a strong research focus and conducts studies on brain changes related to healthy aging, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer''s and other disorders such as Frontotemporal dementia. We could not conduct research without the support of many study volunteers. Research is ongoing, moving closer to improved diagnosis and caregiving techniques, medical intervention, etiology and eventual cure. The ADC provides a thorough diagnostic evaluation of adult memory problems. The ADC can be found within the neurology clinic suite located on the 4th floor of the James W. Aston Ambulatory Care Center at 5303 Harry Hines Boulevard, Dallas, Texas. The Aston Care Center offers valet parking and is northwest of downtown Dallas on the UT Southwestern Medical Center Campus. The center also offers individuals an opportunity to participate in clinical research to aid in finding better treatments for Alzheimer''s disease.
