Research Studies at the Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center
Research at the Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center revolves around the activities of the Oregon Alzheimer's Disease Center (OADC), The OADC is one of 30 national centers funded by the National Institute of Aging and ranks among the top centers nationally.
The OADC is at the forefront of a worldwide effort to discover the causes of Alzheimer's disease, find effective treatments and improve the quality of life for people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
The criteria (conditions for choosing participants) for each study are different. By selecting the name of the study, you will learn more about it and can request more information.
The Layton Center currently has a variety of research studies and clinical trials taking place. We are actively recruiting volunteers to take part in these studies:
