The Mount Sinai Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC), a nationally renowned center of excellence since 1984, is a comprehensive clinical program and research facility dedicated to the study and treatment of both normal aging and Alzheimer's disease.
Our ADRC, with its team of experts in geriatrics, geriatric psychiatry and psychology, neurology, pathology, and radiology, diagnoses and provides patient care for those with memory disorders. Our clinicians and neuroscientists also conduct research into the causes and treatment of dementia, and sponsors educational programs for health care professionals and community groups. Caregiver programs and support groups are also available. All services are available in both English and Spanish.
