Welcome to the website for the Charles F. and Joanne Knight Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (Knight ADRC), in the Department of Neurology, at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The Washington University Knight ADRC is one of 27 centers funded by the National Institute on Aging with the collective aim of facilitating advanced research on clinical, genetic, neuropathological, neuroanatomical, biomedical, psychosocial, and neuropsychological aspects of Alzheimer's disease and related brain disorders. Our Center and its clinical research arm - the Memory and Aging Project (MAP) along with the Memory and Aging Project Satellite (MAPS) - are at the forefront of a worldwide effort to uncover key causal factors in the development of Alzheimer's disease, with a goal of developing more effective treatments and an eventual cure. Since 2000, the Center is guided by an African American Advisory Board (AAAB) on matters of cultural sensitivity and research inclusion.
