Easton Center - Clinical Core

The Clinical Core coordinates the longitudinal study of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and cognitive aging that constitute the human subjects dimension of the Center’s activities. Among the goals of the Clinical Core are to better design and perform clinical trials to treat and prevent Alzheimer's disease (AD). Findings from the Clinical Core, Imaging and Genetic Biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease (ImaGene) and familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD) studies are providing insights regarding diagnosis and prognosis during the prodromal phase of neurodegenerative diseases. We are identifying features that are both common to and distinct among the various forms of AD, in line with our goal of differentiating among subtypes of Alzheimer's disease in our Center.
