Strategic Priorities

Where Memories Matter



The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (Wisconsin ADRC) and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute (WAI) employ complementary approaches to improve the treatment and care of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, with the long-term goal of curing and preventing the disease.


The UW Initiative to End Alzheimer’s addresses these missions through biomedical research, primary prevention research, public health and community engagement, reductions in disparities, and improved models of care. Both the Wisconsin ADRC and the WAI recruit diverse participants for research studies and educate communities about recent advances in Alzheimer’s disease research and patient care.
