The research at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging depends on both public and private funds to operate. Our public funds come from competitive grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute on Aging. Our private funding comes from foundation-sponsored programs and from individual gifts and bequests from patients, families, friends, corporations and other benefactors.
Competitive grant funding supports the day to day operations of the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, but private donations help fund much of the research that we do. Private gifts also allow us to provide excellent community caregiver support, education, and training. In short, private gifts are essential to our mission of research and education to treat, and ultimately, to prevent debilitating brain disorders.
Tax-deductible contributions are welcome and can be made in honor of family members.
Donations made to the UK-ADC will assist the center in continuing to provide innovative new research programs to the public and improving the quality of clinical patient services. Your donation will assist us in our fight against Alzheimer’s disease by providing future patients with the hope of novel and innovative treatments and strategies that could assist in improving patients’ and caregivers’ quality of life.
Help us understand how to better promote normal, healthy brain aging for all, and unlock the secrets of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.
Most experts agree that we may be able to find better treatments, and possibly cures for Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, in the next decade, but only with the continued support of research participants like you and your loved ones.
We hope you will consider this unique opportunity to contribute to our ongoing research efforts. Please help us to realize a day when Alzheimer's disease is nothing more than a memory - well preserved!
Participation is open to persons of all genders, racial backgrounds, and ethnicities. Minority participants are encouraged to enroll. Enrolled participants will also learn about other research opportunities for which they may be eligible.
Participation in clinical trials and research is the only way we can hope to find cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, and promote normal healthy brain and body aging for all!
