Advancing the Science Through Research and Education
The University of Kansas Alzheimer's research program was established in 2004 by Dr. Jeffrey Burns 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. The KU ADC strives to provide cutting-edge treatment and research opportunities, as well as support and provide educational opportunities to caregivers and families.
The people of Johnson County, KS support space for the KU ADC through the Johnson County Education Research Triangle initiative.
The mission of the KU Alzheimer's Disease Center is to improve the lives of patients and families with Alzheimer's disease by eliminating the disease through research into its treatment and prevention.
