Volunteering for Research


Over the past 15 years scientists have made tremendous progress understanding exactly how Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain. Researchers continue to work diligently to find better diagnostic methods, treatments, preventions and even cures. Testing in human volunteers is essential to learning what is successful. Following successful laboratory work or animal studies, new treatments must undergo clinical trials (testing in human volunteers). Findings cannot become a reality without human testing.
