Center for Advancing Sociodemographic and Economic Study of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias

The Center for Advancing Sociodemographic and Economic Study of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (CeASES-ADRD) is an interdisciplinary research center housed at the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics the Schaeffer Center, Stanford and the University of Texas, Austin. CeASES-ADRD supports innovative research on the health, economic and social impacts of dementia by identifying opportunities to reduce risk and costs of dementia, improve access and care, and advance solutions for achieving health equity. A special interest is in the development of global, dynamic microsimulation models of ADRD. The findings from these models will inform policymakers and other stakeholders of the trends in ADRD. Goals of the Center are accomplished through network building to broaden and diversify social scientist researchers of dementia; funding support for pilot projects; convening workshops and the annual Science of ADRD for Social Scientists Program to improve the knowledge and capability of researchers.

This project is supported by the National Institute on Aging under the National Institutes of Health, award number P30AG066589.
