As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research, the Alzheimer’s Association is committed to accelerating the global effort to eliminate Alzheimer’s. For people living with dementia, and those personally affected by it, participating in research is one way to take action and make a difference. Here in North Carolina, there are two options available for those interested in staying informed of potential clinical trials.
One example of this is local research partner NC Registry for Brain Health which connects North Carolinians of all ages to research opportunities designed to improve brain health. When you join the NC Registry for Brain Health, you will learn about research taking place at Duke University, East Carolina University, North Carolina A&T State University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest School of Medicine. Learn more about the NC Registry for Brain Health visit ncbrainhealth.org.
Additional studies can also be found through the Alzheimer’s Association TrialMatch® a free, easy-to-use clinical studies matching service that connects individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease, caregivers, and healthy volunteers with current research studies. Our continuously updated database of Alzheimer’s clinical studies includes hundreds of pharmacological (drug) and non-pharmacological (non-drug) studies being conducted at sites across the country and online.
