Participate in a Study

Investing your time to participate in clinical trials can make a world of difference in research. Studies require more than just those diagnosed with a particular condition. “Normal controls” – those who are healthy and have not been diagnosed with the condition being studied – are extremely important for any study to progress. 

Studies and clinical trials are ongoing in many areas of aging and age-related diseases. As a study participant, your dedication is rewarded by knowing that you are making a direct contribution to advancing research that can change the lives of patients and family members.
