The mission of the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center is to serve as a shared research resource in order to facilitate research in Alzheimer disease and related disorders and to distinguish them from normal aging. Within this mission, one objective is to provide an environment and core resources to enhance ongoing research and foster new lines by bringing together basic and clinical scientists to study the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer disease and related dementias, with an emphasis on hereditary dementias. Another objective is to provide an environment for fellows and junior faculty to acquire research skills and experience in interdisciplinary research and thereby promote their interest in the area of Alzheimer disease research.
