  1. Resource Description
    The heart of the Penn ADRC’s Clinical Core sits in the Penn Memory Center (PMC). PMC is a multi-departmental clinical and clinical research outpatient center located in the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine (PCAM). To help support the theme of the Penn ADRC -- to better understand both the upstream factors and processes that contribute to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) heterogeneity and the downstream markers critical to characterizing it – the Clinical Core deeply characterizes a clinically and demographically diverse cohort, including but not limited to: Cognitively normal older adults to those with mild dementia Those with other neurodegenerative conditions such as Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) and Lewy body disease Those with atypical and early onset AD presentations In collaboration with the Outreach, Recruitment, and Engagement Core (ORE), recruitment of African Americans, a group poorly represented in AD research, is also a priority and enhances efforts to examine the diversity of factors that contribute to heterogeneity in expression of disease. Additionally, the Clinical Core serves as an important base for training efforts with the Research Education Component to develop the next generation of investigators and clinicians, as well as collaborating closely with the other Cores of the center in a variety of ways.
