Dementia clinical trials

Help us improve treatment for people with dementia by participating in a clinical trial.

Cognition platform research study

Do you, or someone you know, aged 55-85, have mild cognitive impairment or mild Alzheimer’s disease?

About this study

We invite you to contact us about a clinical research study now enrolling at our Medical and Cognitive Research Unit (MCRU). Participants will complete a series of cognitive tests more often than in traditional studies, while taking a study medication, to see if this new testing approach can improve future clinical trials.

This clinical study is sponsored by a pharmaceutical company.

For more information please contact the MCRU.

Other dementia research studies

  • Are you concerned about your memory or the memory of a loved one?
  • Do you have a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease?

If you answered "Yes" to either of these questions, you may be interested in participating in Alzheimer's disease or memory research.

About these studies

Our MCRU is conducting clinical trials to investigate the safety and effectiveness of medications to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Participants may qualify if they are:

  • 50-90 years old
  • concerned about yourself or a loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or who has memory problems
  • someone who can access a study partner. A study partner is someone who knows you well and sees you often. Your study partner will need to attend appointments and provide accurate information about your everyday living requirements
  • fluent in English.
