Volunteer for Alzheimer's Research PDF Print E-mail
The Texas Alzheimer's Research and Care Consortium is currently recruiting persons age 50 or older with probable Alzheimer's disease to participate in TARCC research studies into Alzheimer's onset and progression.  The TARCC also is recruiting adults with healthy cognition to serve as a research "control" group.

All TARCC research participants will receive a free standard physical exam as well as free comprehensive clinical, neurological and neuro-psychological evaluation at one of the following five Consortium research sites listed below. Blood will be drawn for genetic, biomarker and laboratory analysis and to bank for use in addressing future research questions. A complete follow-up examination will be conducted annually for all research subjects.  Research participants will receive an annual $100 stipend to cover any costs.

For more information about how to participate in the Consortium's Alzheimer's research studies, please contact the Project Coordinator at one of the following medical research institutions or click on the links below for current research & trials:
