The Clinical Core’s mission is to guide participants through the Duke & UNC ADRC Memory & Aging Study.

At each study visit, the Core provides participants with standardized medical, neurologic, and neuropsychological evaluations.

The Clinical Core also collects biospecimens (blood and cerebrospinal fluid), sensory/motor data, brain imaging, and biomarker data to the Biomarker Core.

All study participant data is securely stored in the ARENA Gateway.
