Research and Clinical Trials

Opportunities to participate in research at the Alzheimer’s Disease Center

The UC Davis ADC has a number of clinical research studies that explore cognitive and functional change, caregiving, and clinical trials of new therapeutic agents. Participation in research is not a requirement to be evaluated at the UC Davis ADC.


Clinical trials

The ADC has an active clinical trials program. For more information on studies that are open for enrollment, contact:

Maria Levallois (916) 734-5245

Renee Reza (925) 357-6914.


Pilot awards

The ADC has a competitive pilot program and awards two pilot grants each year. This program enables both new and established investigators to generate pilot data that can be used to advance Alzheimer’s research and enhance their ability to be competitive for extramural grants.
