The San Diego Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (AD-RCMAR) is one of only eight AD-RCMARs across the United States. Established in 2018, the purpose of this center is two-fold:

1) To enhance the diversity of researchers studying Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) by focusing on the recruitment and career development of scientists from underrepresented groups; and

2) To fill critical gaps in ADRD research focused on older Latinos. Our Center is a joint partnership between the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University.

Congratulations to the 2021-22 Graduating Cohort!

We are beyond proud of our 2020-2021 graduating cohort of scientists. The future of aging research in underrepresented communities looks brighter because of you all! Congrats!
