Recognizing that Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD) are not unitary biologic entities, we seek to define subtypes of ADRD that are therapeutically relevant to identify the right treatment for the right patient at the right time.


Harnessing the power of exciting new methods such as artificial intelligence, advances in the understanding of extracellular vesicles, and stem cell derived individualized models of brain disease we seek to disrupt and accelerate treatment development targeting novel therapies to distinct ADRD subtypes.

Alzheimer's and Dementia Research

Big Data Power Analyzing Real World Data from Medical Records

How can we predict individuals at-risk for cognitive decline and faster progression?

Scaling Evidence-Based Care

How can cutting edge quality care be made available to all persons with ADRC throughout Johns Hopkins and beyond?


Expedite Discovery - Closing the Loop

How can we fast track the research from clinic to test tube and back to the clinic with blood biomarkers for subtyping and for advancing therapeutics?

Innovation: Brain Scans

How can existing brain MRI methods be refined for early detection, prognosis, or predicting response to available medications?

Innovation: New Blood Test

Can novel blood tests based on "extracellular vesicles (EVs)” be developed to learn about what’s going on in the brain so as to stage the ADRD brain disease and monitor treatment response?


Innovation: Stem Cell Models

Can blood derived stems cells models be used to test whether individual patients will be helped by available and emerging medication treatments?

Clinical Trials

The Richman Family Precision Medicine Center of Excellence in Alzheimer’s Disease can facilitate access to several clinical trials conducted as part of the Johns Hopkins Memory and Alzheimer's Treatment Center (MATC) or the NIA-funded Johns Hopkins Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC).
