Finding clinical trials

Trial matching services and registries can help you to locate clinical studies happening in your area.

Trial matching services

Several Alzheimer associations have developed initiatives where you can register your interest in participating in trials and be matched with studies that are recruiting participants.

UK: Join Dementia Research – Service that enables you to register your interest and be matched with suitable research studies.

USA: Alzheimer’s Association TrialMatch – 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.

Australia: StepUp for Dementia Research – StepUp for Dementia Research is a research participation and engagement service, a “one-stop shop” that connects individuals – both with and without dementia – with researchers conducting studies into dementia prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and cure.
