The Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry brings together leading researchers with people who are interested in taking part in Alzheimer’s studies. It's become increasingly clear that successful interventions need to take place early, and this project aims to help this along by not only helping to educate and inform people, but also to help research along by finding participants for prevention studies.

Alzheimer's Association TrialMatch is "a free, easy-to-use clinical studies matching service that connects individuals with Alzheimer's, caregivers, healthy volunteers and physicians with current studies. Our continuously updated database of Alzheimer's clinical trials includes more than 260 promising clinical studies being conducted at over 700 trials sites across the country."
