The Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center (RADC), one of 29 Alzheimer's disease (AD) Research Centers across the country designated and funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), is dedicated to supporting research about the cause, treatment, and prevention of AD, other dementias, and a range of other common chronic conditions of aging. The many RADC studies generate an enormous variety of unique data and biospecimens to support this effort. RADC faculty and staff are committed to sharing these resources with the wider aging and AD research community to accelerate the pace at which new knowledge is created for the treatment and prevention of dementia and other age-related chronic neurologic conditions.
The RADC Research Resource Sharing Hub was specifically designed to help you, the non-RADC investigator, navigate the complex data and biospecimens available for sharing, and to assist you in identifying data and biospecimens that you can use to support your own projects. We invite you to explore the site, see what is available, and submit your data and/or biospecimen request.

Learn about RADC cohort studies through enrollment and autopsy timelines, and study design papers. Explore organized categories of available data such as omics, cognitive assessments, and neuropathology. Search documentation of variables and data collection procedures.
Generate reports on participant frequency for selected criteria, broken down by demographics. Use the Data Availability Report to examine RADC data and biospecimen availability and determine how available resources match a project's requirements. Use the Longitudinal Report to examine participant frequency across multiple waves of assessments.
Submit a request for data, biospecimens, or personal identifiers. Learn about the request submission, review, and distribution processes including requirements for material transfer and data use agreements.
