Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Center (MADC)

Since 1989, the Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center (MADC) has conducted research to learn more about conditions which affect memory and aging. Now is the time to join our research team as we pave the way to new discoveries in treatment and prevention. The University of Michigan Memory and Aging Project (UM-MAP) looks at changes in your memory as you get older. Participation in UM-MAP qualifies you for the brain autopsy and donation program, at no cost to you. People living with memory loss or dementia, care partners, and healthy volunteers are needed for study participation. The MADC also supports studies related to clinical drug trials, driving, and caregiving. Be a link and volunteer!
