Research & Clinical Trials

Research is crucial to understanding mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia. Through clinical trials and studies, scientists and the medical community are better equipped to serve people living with cognitive issues and their support systems. To significantly reduce the burden of neurological diseases for future generations, the Goizueta Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) partners with affected communities to conduct innovative research. 

Our goals include:

  • Cultivating a better understanding of MCI
  • Achieving the ability to diagnosis cognitive issues earlier in a patient's life to more quickly begin treating and managing memory disorders
  • Involving persons who are often underrepresented in research, such as members of the African American community

To achieve these goals, some of our studies need research volunteers. Research volunteers help us investigate how memory changes during the aging process, for volunteers living with or living without MCI or dementia.

Research activities include a variety of preclinical and clinical studies as well as research for family caregivers.
