Darrell K Royal Texas Alzheimer's Initiative

In October 2012, the Texas Council on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders (Council) members unanimously voted to rename all funded Alzheimer’s disease efforts under their purview to the “Darrell K Royal Texas Alzheimer's Initiative.”

This initiative is committed to fostering excellence in research through the legislatively mandated Texas Alzheimer’s Research and Care Consortium (TARCC); addressing the burden of Alzheimer’s disease in Texas through statewide strategic planning; promoting collaborative research projects among Texas Alzheimer’s researchers, and coordinating/supporting other state funded activities as they relate to Alzheimer’s disease.
