Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (W-ADRC)

The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (W-ADRC) of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinic Center (GRECC) of the Madison VA Medical Center, works on identifying new treatment strategies for Alzheimer’s disease, investigates the processes which occur in the brain compared to normal aging, and looks for effective prevention strategies.

Multiple research studies are being conducted that examine potential treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and other types of memory problems as well as how to prevent memory decline and dementia. If you or someone you know might be interested in participating, call 608.263.2582 or contact them by email.

Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute (WAI)

The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute (WAI) is an academic center within the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. WAI promotes education, training, program development and research directed at improving our understanding of how to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

WAI is currently recruiting for the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP), which will consist of 700 adult children of persons diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and 150 people whose parents did not have Alzheimer’s disease. WRAP will support genetic, epidemiological and clinical studies designed to identify those factors which may delay or prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. To find out more about the program or eligibility requirements, contact the WAI at 800.417.4169 or 608.263.2862 , or send them an email.
