Volunteer for a Research Study

Research is an essential process in developing and testing new medical treatments and interventions for memory disorders like dementia and Alzheimer's. Everything we have learned about memory, memory treatments, and memory disorders is known because someone volunteered for a research study.


Two groups conduct Alzheimer’s disease research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Many UW Health physicians who care for patients are also researchers with these programs.


Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center


The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center generally has several open studies and clinical trials recruiting men and women over the age of 45 with or without memory concerns.


Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute



The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute manages the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Prevention Registry (WRAP) study, the world’s largest longitudinal research study on adults whose parents were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
