Much of what we know about Alzheimer's disease has been discovered in the last 15 years. These discoveries would not have been possible without research and people volunteering to be a part of that research. We hope you or a loved one will consider joining a study at the KU Alzheimer's Disease Center (KU ADC). We need people with and without memory changes. When you join a study, you join the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Help us find ways to treat and prevention this disease.

The decision to participate in clinical research should be made after careful consideration of all that is being asked within the study. Some studies involve one or two visits, while others require a commitment over multiple months or years. Before deciding to join a study, be sure you understand all risks, potential treatment benefits, and study obligations.
The KU ADC offers a wide range of clinical research for which you may be eligible to participate, and every study unlocks more clues about the mysteries of Alzheimer's disease. We also offer National Institutes of Health (NIH) sponsored clinical trials and interventional studies that have been designed by KU ADC researchers as well as pharmaceutical industry-sponsored clinical trials and interventional studies.
