The National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC)
The National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center (NACC), established in 1999, maintains a cumulative database including clinical evaluations, neuropathology data when available, and now MRI imaging. NACC invites researchers throughout the AD community to take advantage of this valuable resource.
Boston University’s Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Center conducts high-impact, innovative research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy and other long-term consequences of repetitive brain trauma in athletes and military personnel. The mission of the CTE Center is to conduct state-of-the-art research on CTE, including its neuropathology and pathogenesis, clinical presentation, genetics and other risk factors, biomarkers, methods of detection during life, and methods of prevention and treatment.
