Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research at UCLA

The Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research at UCLA (UCLA-Easton Center) is a comprehensive research center focused on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Our mission is to:

~Improve the quality of life for patients and caregivers

~Develop new medications and treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and related conditions

~Support research to better understand Alzheimer’s disease and related conditions

To ensure the success of the mission, UCLA-Easton Center supports people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families through the UCLA Memory Disorders Clinic, the clinical trials program, and scientific research.

UCLA Memory Disorders Clinic– The UCLA Memory Disorders Clinic specializes in the evaluation and diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment, early Alzheimer’s disease, Frontotemporal dementia, and related disorders. We believe that an early diagnosis enables patients to take advantage of the most effective therapies and to maintain the highest level of functioning for the longest period of time.

Clinical Trials – UCLA-Easton Center focus’ on the development and operation of clinical trials to study new medications that may prevent or delay the course of Alzheimer’s disease. New treatments are possible only through the voluntarily participation of patients and family members.   UCLA-Easton Center is constantly exploring new trials as we strive to remain on the cutting edge of research and the search for a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.

Research– The UCLA Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) is one of the major medical institutions in the United States funded by the National Institute of Aging (NIA). The focus of the ADRC is to understand more about Alzheimer’s and provide a better treatment of the disease.
