Nevada exploratory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (NVeADRC)
Research and Resources for Rural Communities
In September 2020, the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at The National Institutes of Health awarded Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health $3.3 million to establish The Nevada exploratory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (NVeADRC).
We are the first and only NIA-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center in Nevada. The NVeADRC focuses on disparities faced by individuals with dementia in rural settings and small communities across the intermountain west.
The three-year award is the first of its kind to be presented as part of the NIH’s prestigious Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers Program – a national network of researchers and clinicians at major medical institutions pursuing improved diagnosis and care for people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Although our study center is located in Las Vegas, NV, we are currently enrolling study participants living in rural communities in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and California.

Expanding Our Rural Reach and Knowledge Through Collaboration
Cleveland Clinic Nevada and University of Nevada Las Vegas are partnering to provide dementia care and scientific discovery for rural communities. By combining resources and expertise, we can better serve the needs of our state and the surrounding communities in the intermountain west. The NVeADRC is guided by our shared principles to engage the community, support individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their families, and develop innovative approaches to treatment. Through collaboration, we offer resources, education, research opportunities, and healthcare to those living with dementia in rural communities located in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and California.
