Advancing the knowledge of aging brains to enhance lives and outcomes

Community Participation makes our mission possible

Have you ever wondered how a new drug gets approved by the FDA? Or, how an MRI or PET scanner was developed? Are you curious how we know so much about how your heart, your lungs, your kidneys, and your liver works? This is all because of research volunteers.

A research participant is crucial to conducting clinical research and answering important questions that can advance medical science and improve the human condition. This could be in form of answering survey questions, donating a sample of blood or DNA, having an MRI, and testing a new medication. Your support is essential to finding the cure. Your legacy can be a world without Alzheimer’s Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia and Frontotemporal Degeneration and Related Disorders.
