About the Center / Who We Are
USC's Memory and Aging Center (MAC) is a university-based research center that provides state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services. It includes USC's Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC) and two State of California Alzheimer Disease Centers (ADC). For 30 years, the USC Alzheimer Disease Research Center has pioneered dementia research and treatment. It was one of the original centers funded by the National Institute on Aging to establish a research center focused on Alzheimer disease and related disorders.
The USC Memory and Aging Center is a foremost resource for clinicians, patients and caregivers, volunteers, and researchers on memory and aging. Our goal is to continue to provide patients and participants with precise and accurate diagnoses, comprehensive clinical care and access to leading-edge clinical trials and research studies to advance the understanding of Alzheimer disease.
Our staff includes neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, nurses, and social workers who collaborate with basic scientists on diagnosis, treatment and research. There are three clinic locations.
