Genetics of Alzheimer's disease study needs participants

The Center for Human Genetics Research at Vanderbilt Medical Center is exploring the genetics of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and seeks participants for a non‐treatment study.

We are seeking two types of individuals who are over age 60: 1) those with a diagnosis of AD or dementia, and 2) those without memory problems.

Participation involves a one-time visit which includes obtaining family and medical history, memory testing and one-time blood draw. It will take approximately one to two hours. Travel to Vanderbilt is not required.
