Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that gradually destroys memory, thinking skills, and eventually the ability to perform basic tasks. Currently, there is no way to prevent, cure, or slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

Our Study

The Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) is a historic study of brain aging looking to help increase the pace of discovery in the race to prevent, treat and one day cure Alzheimer’s disease. For more than a decade, ADNI researchers have been working to better understand the disease.

Now, in this next step, this initiative is studying how quickly brain cognition and function changes. ADNI3 is defining how best to measure these changes and sharing this information immediately with researchers around the world. Together, participants and researchers are increasing understanding to help lay a path forward for a better future.

Am I Eligible to Help?

You may be able to help if you are 55 to 90 years of age and ...

  • Are in good health
  • Have little to no memory concerns or have a diagnosis of early Alzheimer’s disease or Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
  • Are willing and able to undergo in-clinic assessments, memory testing and other test procedures
  • Have a study partner who can accompany you to all clinic visits

This is a free study, and no medication will be involved.

About Clinical Research

A clinical research study is a carefully designed scientific evaluation conducted by doctors. By taking part in this clinical study, you are helping researchers define the progression of Alzheimer's disease. The ADNI3 research data collected can help in the discovery of potential new treatments that could changed the future of how we treat Alzheimer's disease. Today's treatments and cures for debilitating and life-threatening illnesses exist mainly because of people who have volunteered to participate in past clinical studies.
