Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center Volunteer Opportunities

Future advances in Alzheimer’s disease research and treatment start today, with motivated volunteers participating in research. Their time and effort have enabled NYU Langone researchers to make breakthrough discoveries that have shaped the history of Alzheimer’s disease research. Volunteers are an essential part of the work we do to better understand Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and test new preventative and treatment approaches. By volunteering to take part in a study, you can help us shape the future.

There are several ways to get involved in research at the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center:

  • Join the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center’s longitudinal study – This study follows healthy older adults with annual visits and is one of the largest and longest-running studies of brain aging and Alzheimer’s disease in the country. You can join this study at any time if you satisfy the eligibility criteria.
  • Participate in research studies – Our researchers and clinicians are recruiting for a wide variety of studies. Some of these studies are observational, and do not require participants to take medications. You may be eligible to participate in a research study that is currently recruiting participants.
  • Participate in clinical trials – Clinical trials aim to identify and test new and promising approaches to treatment and may involve medications. Please check if you are eligible to participate in a clinical trial. You may also be referred to an appropriate clinical trial by your physician.
  • Sign up for the brain donation program – Brain donation is one of the most important and impactful gifts to the field of Alzheimer’s disease research. A single donation can provide information for many research studies, helping researchers to understand Alzheimer’s disease and develop new treatments.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, you can join our research registry and be the first to know about opportunities to participate in studies, news, and research updates. To join, please fill out our research registry form.
