Participate in a study
The Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Disease Research Center has a wide variety of opportunities for volunteers to participate in important research studies designed to discover ways to prevent, treat, and ultimately eradicate Alzheimer's disease as well as other related neurological diseases. We are recruiting diverse volunteers on an ongoing basis to learn more about memory and aging.

A clinical trial is a research study in which a human subject is assigned to one or more interventions (which may include an investigational drug, placebo, or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related or behavioral outcomes. The ADRC Clinical Trials Unit has a variety of clinical trials available for participants with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
