Participate in a Study

Becoming involved is critical to research. Your investment of time can mean a world of difference.

Studies and clinical trials need more than those diagnosed with a particular disease or ailment. 'Normal controls,' those who are healthy and have not been diagnosed with the disease being studied, are also extremely important for any study or trial to proceed.

Studies and clinical trials are ongoing in many areas of aging and age related diseases. It requires an investment of your time and travel to Penn, but the reward is knowing that you made a direct contribution to advancing what researchers and clinicians know about a particular disease or disorder.
