GeneMatch is a research program of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry to identify a large group of people interested in participating in Alzheimer’s research studies based on their genetic information.
The information you provide will remain secure and confidential. It will be used to help potentially connect you to research studies. Whether you pursue participation in a study is entirely up to you. You are under no obligation to join any study opportunity that may be offered and can remove yourself from GeneMatch at any time.
The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry created the GeneMatch program to help match people who are 55- 75 years old to research studies based on their genetic information.
GeneMatch will provide you with a cheek swab kit to determine which copies of a gene (known as the APOE type allele) you have. You will not be told your APOE genotype as part of the GeneMatch Program.
GeneMatch may contact you about study opportunities or other based on your APOE genotype. Your interest and response to these study opportunities may be recorded and tracked by the GeneMatch team. You may be invited to complete online education modules and surveys.
Participants will be asked questions regarding the learning material and answers will be recorded and tracked by the GeneMatch team.
The GeneMatch Program is currently enrolling participants in locations across the United States.
