The Oregon Alzheimer's Disease Center (OADC), funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) was established in 1990 to conduct aging and dementia research. In 2004, Rex and Ruth Layton announced a $1 million pledge of support for the OHSU Alzheimer's Disease Center. In recognition of their generous gift, OHSU named the Center the Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center in honor of the Layton family.
