Why Join

For the first time in history, we can begin to see an end to Alzheimer's. But we need your help to get us there.

Scientists have made tremendous progress in the fight against the disease in just the past decade, and new studies launch every month. But researchers can't do the work alone: they need people like you to take part in their research.

Right now, 80% of studies are delayed because too few people sign up to participate. The Alzheimer's Prevention Registry, led by Banner Alzheimer's Institute, is changing this situation by connecting researchers with people willing to help advance their work.

Uniting scientists and people like you

  • First, we work with scientists to identify studies that need participants. Then, we look for Registry members who might be eligible and email them their new study opportunities.
  • Study participation is always optional, and you can choose to drop out at any time.
  • Your personal information will always remain confidential.
  • Joining the Registry is easy and free.
  • Besides study opportunities, members also receive the latest Alzheimer's news and research findings.

Creating a legacy: a world without Alzheimer's

The Registry is dedicated to creating a future without Alzheimer's. Registry Director and researcher Jessica Langbaum, Ph.D., watched her own grandfather struggle with the disease. In the video below, she explains how this motivates her work:

New science, new hope

We've already helped several important studies get started. But with new ones launching all the time, that's just the beginning. Learn more about how the Registry works and why your help is so important.

A broad and diverse community dedicated to ending Alzheimer's

Scientists need people from all backgrounds to become involved in research. Prevention studies rely on healthy people without signs or symptoms of dementia to step up and join.

Not everyone will be eligible for every study: each one has its own inclusion criteria, and sometimes only a small percentage of people will meet them. This is why it's so important for us to build a large, broad and diverse community.
