The 6th leading cause of death in the US, and the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disorder that irreversibly destroys brain function over time.

Alzheimer’s Disease Research (ADR), a program of BrightFocus Foundation, is working to change that scenario, by funding bold, innovative scientific research around the world.
