Individuals between the ages of 47-68 who do not have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or other memory impairment and are in generally good physical and mental health are invited to participate in a screening visit for the study.
About the Study:
This study is designed to measure and track changes in the brain over time in people at different levels of genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease. This is done through regular brain imaging and memory testing once every two years.
For over two decades, this study has worked to understand and track biological and cognitive changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease before and after symptoms appear. These measurements help researchers evaluate how well promising prevention and treatment therapies work, which aid Alzheimer’s disease researchers everywhere in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease.
What is Involved:
Qualified volunteers will receive a blood test. Some of those volunteers will be invited to have neurological and memory testing at Mayo Clinic and brain imaging (PET and MRI) at Banner Alzheimer's Institute every two years.
