Despite advances in medicine, many diseases still pose significant challenges for the senior population. For example, there’s no disease-modifying treatment for Parkinson’s Disease, and many patients do not respond to current treatments for Chronic Kidney Disease.
Innovation in medicine requires careful observation of people who are either experiencing a medical condition now or at-risk of developing it in the future. By considering differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers can accelerate the discovery of more effective medicines.
We invite you to join a community of patients dedicated to discovering new treatments for age-related diseases.
The goal of our research is to develop a better understanding of the medical conditions you have, or may be at risk of developing, and to monitor how your condition may change over time.
Research is conducted in partnership with leading clinicians and researchers from academic medical centers, non-profit organizations, and biopharmaceutical companies.
Throughout your participation we will share what the medical community already knows about caring for a particular condition, as well as anything we learn over the course of research that could help you and your healthcare providers take better care of you.
