The APT Webstudy monitors volunteers who are 50 and older for changes in their memory through a series of quarterly, no-cost memory tests. It takes place online, without any in-person visits required. APT Webstudy researchers use the results to track volunteers’ memory and, based on potential risk level, invite select volunteers to participate in other Alzheimer’s research studies.
The APT Webstudy is funded by the National Institutes of Health and led by internationally renowned researchers from the Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute of the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Cleveland Clinic.
The Webstudy is required by law to maintain the privacy and security of participants’ protected health information, and the data privacy of participants is paramount.
