As we seek to understand and cure Alzheimer' disease (AD) and related dementias, the University of Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Center (MADC) considers it among our highest priorities to support innovative, high impact research. The MADC Pilot Project Program is partially supported by the Alzheimer's Disease Core Center (ADCC) linking the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Wayne State University. The ADCC’s central theme focuses on identifying, understanding and modulating the numerous non-β-amyloid factors that contribute to brain dysfunction and neurodegeneration. The MADC Pilot Project Program provides “kick-starter” funds to University of Michigan (UM), Michigan State University (MSU), Wayne State University (WSU), and Veteran Affairs Ann Arbor Health System (VAAAHS) investigators to test new ideas about the causes and treatment of dementing disorders.
