Center for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders

Donations to SIU CADRD

SIU CADRD is committed to medical research in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders.  The continuing importance of research, together with the reduction of government grants, makes private philanthropy vital to medical research.  Your gift can provide important laboratory equipment, help defray the enormous cost of clinical research, or help fund essential studies.

The results of the research done at SIU have benefited many individuals and their families.  Past research was funded, in part, by individuals and groups who have been personally helped by our faculty and staff.

Thanks to substantial gifts and grants, we have made great strides in Alzheimer’s disease research.  We can do more.  The need continues. Your contribution can make an impact on the future.
