Since 1991, the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study has forged ahead in researching effective new drug treatments for patients suffering from this debilitating disease. Focused on research with far reaching impact, the program has managed nearly 30 drug, instrument, and prevention trials at clinical test sites throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Your gift, large or small, will immediately contribute to the battle against the devastation Alzheimer’s disease has caused, which has claimed the lives of thousands and touched the lives of many more each year.


The UC San Diego Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study is experiencing an exciting new phase of rapid growth and discovery – and you can help us achieve our mission. Gifts to support the ADCS will benefit countless individuals and their families, as new therapies are developed to treat Alzheimer’s disease.

Even modest contributions, pooled with donations from other friends of the program, can achieve tremendous results that will make a vast impact against the battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
