The Alzheimer's Disease Center evaluates patients and conducts scientific research into treatments for Alzheimer's disease. Our research is focused on improving diagnosis and treatments and seeking an eventual cure.
We are dedicated to finding ways to treat and prevent Alzheimer's disease – a devastating illness that is predicted to rise to 12 million cases by the year 2030. We strive to educate people with Alzheimer's and their loved ones about the research, treatment, and support available at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
