ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE RESEARCH

 

Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative 3 (ADNI3)

The Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (also known as ADNI) is a historic study of brain aging looking to help change the future for this disease.

If you are 55 to 90 years of age, you may be able to help if you:

·         Are in good general health

·         Have a diagnosis of early AD, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or are cognitively normal

·         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

·         Are fluent in English or Spanish

This is a free study. No experimental medication will be involved.
