Heroes and Pioneers

Our research participants are our heroes! They are pioneers in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. We are so fortunate to have such fabulous research volunteers. Without them we could not form the partnerships necessary to move the fight against Alzheimer’s forward.

You’re Never too Old to Participate in Research

Dr. Stephen Salloway sits down with Mrs. Susi, a 102 year old pioneer in research, to talk about why she decided to participate in the Avid 16 study, which investigates a PET scan tracer to see if it can detect a build-up of tau protein, which is one of the abnormalities found in patient brains with Alzheimer’s disease. She has spent her life volunteering and helping others and now shows us that you are never too old to make a difference.
