What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are research studies used to support our mission of finding new and better ways to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. With the help of volunteers, our doctors are able to learn more about the disease and its risks and patients are able to have access to advanced treatments.

Once our researchers find a promising treatment, the treatment will be made available to people that meet the criteria for the particular disease being studied.
