Cores and Capabilities

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 physicians and families as well as well-characterized tissue to basic researchers.

Outreach and Recruitment

The Outreach and Recruitment Core administers community 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 support for the application of advanced neuroimaging in clinical and translational research.

Genetics, Biomarker, and Bioinformatics Core

The Genetics, Biomarker and Bioinformatics Core builds on the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center’s strong history of innovative research in the genetics of hereditary dementia as well as imaging genomics.
