Alzheimer's Disease Center

The University of Kansas Alzheimer’s research program was established in 2004 and received the prestigious national designation as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Alzheimer’s Disease Center in 2011, one of only 31 nationally designated Alzheimer’s Disease Centers. Led by director Dr. Russell Swerdlow and co-director Dr. Jeffrey Burns, the Center strives to provide cutting-edge treatment and research opportunities, as well as support and provide educational opportunities to caregivers and families. Support for the Center will help it maintain status as a national leader in clinical trials. These include testing broad strategies ranging from lifestyle interventions, such as diet and exercise, to the latest potential drug therapies.
