Participation in Research

Scientists want to learn more about the diseases that cause memory loss and dementia. Our center is looking for a variety of people who are willing to partner with us in Alzheimer's research. We think of study participants as our partners in the effort to find a prevention for neurological conditions that lead to dementia. New opportunities for observational studies or clinical trials appear over time, and these may involve different groups of patients. The goals of these studies may be to:


►Help us understand more about how these diseases change the brain

►Help us understand what triggers these changes

►Test treatments that may prevent or delay these changes


Clinical Trials & Studies - Currently Enrolling

(Normal cognition, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer's disease, Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), Parkinsons's disease dementia, Dementia with Lewy bodies.)
