For Research Volunteers

Why Volunteer?

The health of millions has been improved because of the thousands of individuals who volunteer in clinical research. While advancements in research and science have also contributed, without research volunteers those advancements could not have been achieved.

To continue these advancements, we need research volunteers to donate their time, and their blood, which will help researchers test treatments and discover root causes of cognitive impairment in the brain.

What to Expect?

Clinical trials at Emory must follow strict rules that are set by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). This group of people review research to make sure it will be done safely and that the benefits of the research outweigh the risks to the participants. This is done to protect the study participants welfare, health, safety and privacy while they are involved in a clinical trial. Some clinical trials may be conducted to examine alternative indications for existing medications or treatments.

These trials can take place in hospitals, doctor’s offices, universities or private research clinics. Whatever your area of research interest may be, we all have the same goal: to end Alzheimer’s.
