Alzheimer's Disease Center

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.

Help Us Find a Cure

Dr. David Ford, a professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, lost his mother to Alzheimer's, a disease that strikes twice as many African-Americans as Caucasians. Now he is volunteering for a study at UT Southwestern's ADC in the hope of helping to find a cure. Click on the photo to see the story on NBC5.

Dr. David Ford volunteers for alzheimers study after his mother died of the disease.

If you would like to help with research like Dr. Ford, we have several clinical trials that need volunteers. Please fill out this brief volunteer form and we will contact you. Another way to support Alzheimer's research is to make a monetary donation:
