Request ADRC Resources

Available Resources

We are pleased to serve as a resource for all ADRD research protocols. As one of the NIA-funded Alzheimer's Disease Centers, it is part of our mission to support researchers by providing referrals, samples, data, expertise, and other infrastructure to support research projects investigating topics under the ADRD umbrella.

As part of our mission, we are committed to supplying ADRD researchers with available resources such as:

  • De-identified data
  • Subject referrals from our well-characterized cohort and research registry
  • Tissue samples from our brain bank*
  • Biofluids such as CSF, blood, and plasma
  • iPSC cells
  • Scientific or statistical consultation

Make a Request

All requests will be considered by core leaders and approved by a review committee.

Interested researchers should contact Christina Gigliotti, Ph.D. at cgigliotti@ucsd.edu to be appropriately triaged to the core leader that can provide additional instructions and relevant request forms.  Imaging researchers will be asked to sign a MOU and share de-identified raw images back with the SMADRC.

To request biosamples and brain tissue, complete the SMADRC Tissue and Biosample Request Form.

*The ADRC grant (P30AG062429) covers the cost of brain donation, phenotyping, and banking. To share tissue broadly in support of collaborative research is part of our mission but can be associated with unanticipated expenses. These additional costs are recovered by a small fee. Please contact rrissman@ucsd.edu for additional details.
