Together, University of California San Diego and San Diego State University lead the San Diego Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (AD-RCMAR). It is one of several AD-RCMARs funded across the United States by the National Institute on Aging.

The overall goal of the San Diego AD-RCMAR is to ultimately enhance and increase the diversity of our nation’s scientific workforce with outstanding AD-RCMAR Scientists committed to careers in ADRD (Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias) research focused on understanding and addressing established and emerging multi-level risk factors and developing interventions to reduce ADRD disparities and enhance healthy cognitive aging in diverse populations.
