Participating in Alzheimer’s Research

Banner Health takes pride in the groundbreaking medical advancements made by our researchers over the years. Their success wouldn’t be possible without clinical trials and the participants that make them happen.

Clinical trials are key for advancing the health care landscape and informing new innovative treatments for illness and disease. Our robust clinical trials program is capable of enrolling hundreds of people a year in cutting-edge studies.

Researchers are making tremendous progress in their understanding of Alzheimer’s disease with new studies launching every month. Clinical trial participation is just one way you can make a difference in ending not only Alzheimer’s disease, but many other diseases. Being a part of the solution is extremely rewarding. 

Why Participate in Alzheimer’s Research?

By participating in an Alzheimer’s clinical trial, you can be one of the first people to benefit from a new treatment. Plus, clinical trials help future generations—including your own family who may be at increased risk - as we increase our knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

Clinical trial sponsors cover the costs of some, if not all, testing and medical care for participants. The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry allows you to sign up to receive emails about prevention study opportunities and research news.

Who Is Eligible to Participate in Research?

You don’t need to have an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis to enroll in a clinical trial. Research reveals that Alzheimer’s develops in the brain 20 years before symptoms appear. By participating in clinical trials now, you’ll have access to cutting-edge investigational medicine and will play an essential role in finding new treatments, disease prevention or even a cure.

Clinical trials at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and Banner Sun Health Research Institute require a broad mix of study participants. People who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and memory disorders are recruited, as well as people who are not diagnosed but show early signs of memory loss and people who aren’t affected at all. All of these individuals are important to our research to end Alzheimer’s.
