Serving Oregon and the Northwest since 1989, our vision is to add life to years, not simply years to life.

Welcome to the Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center

The Layton Aging & Alzheimer’s Disease Center is one of 27 NIH Alzheimer’s Disease Centers in the United States and the only one of its kind in Oregon. As an active participant in national and international efforts to understand and develop treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, the Layton Center conducts studies of promising treatments, technologies for patient support, genetics, neuroimaging and pathology.

Our Center is recognized as a national leader in dementia care and research, and is committed to serving the needs of people throughout the Northwest. The expertise of our multidisciplinary staff, and the generosity of community members who volunteer as research participants, are essential to the success of our programs.
