The UK-ADC provides periodic research evaluations, depending on the specific research protocol, for patients participating in research studies. This service does not substitute for their regular clinical care. All tests/evaluations are performed for research purposes only, but some results may have relevance to the participant’s clinical care. A copy of neuropsychological test results and brain imaging reports may be shared with the participant’s physician.
The UK-ADC is dedicated to supporting and conducting research on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders and enhancing the clinical care of Alzheimer’s patients and their families. Referrals to UK-ADC supported studies will enable the research team to continue to contribute to the growing knowledge about the cause of and treatment for diseases that impair memory.
