The following are programs affiliated with our USC Geriatric Studies Center:

USC Alzheimer's Disease Research Center

The focus of the USC ADRC is reducing the cognitive and behavioral impact of Alzheimer's disease and cerebrovascular dementia among ethnically diverse populations. The objective of the ADRC is to provide a mechanism for integrating, coordinating, fostering and developing interdisciplinary cooperation of a group of established investigators conducting programs of research on AD, CVD, and related disorders of older people.

CATIE (Clinical Antipsychotic Trials in Intervention Effectiveness) is a study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and coordinated by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill which studies treatment effectiveness and outcomes in schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease.

The Cochrane Library

Dr. Schneider is an editor at the Cochrane Library. The Cochrane Library is published on a quarterly basis and made available both on CD-ROM and the Internet. It is the best single source of reliable evidence about the effects of health care. The Cochrane Library consists of a regularly updated collection of evidence-based medicine databases, including The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, which provide high quality information to people providing and receiving care and those responsible for research, teaching, funding and administration at all levels.

Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study

USC Geriatric Studies Center is a steering committee member of the Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS). The ADCS was formed in 1991 as a cooperative agreement between the National Institute of Aging and the University of California San Diego. The ADCS was developed in response to a need to advance research in the development of drugs that might be useful for treating patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), particularly drugs that might not be developed by industry.

Alzheimer's Disease Program of California

The Alzheimer's Disease Program of California provides services to persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders and their families through the Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers of California (ARCCs). It also provides research funding to scientists engaged in the study of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders through the Alzheimer's Disease Research Fund. (source: ADPC)

USC Aging Nexus

Aging Nexus website is designed to stimulate research and training on aging throughout USC. Our programs in aging research and training have grown far beyond their beginnings in the Andrus Gerontology Center in 1972. The Aging-Nexus website will flex and grow as USC faculty, staff, and students increasingly recognize how mechanisms at work in aging shapes all living systems. These mechanisms cross all domains, from familial genetics to prenatal environmental influences on aging; from the oxidation of proteins to the senescence of brain cells; from the loss of growth control in cancers to the regulation of glucose; from the motor skills of athletes to the recovery from bone fractures; from caregiving by grandparents to economic strategies for retirement. This challenging agenda of practical, clinical and basic research uses correspondingly broad approaches, from studies of cultured microbes to human communities. (source: USC Aging Nexus)
