Description

The biggest obstacles to cures for brain disorders may be the costs and time involved in clinical trials – and the Brain Health Registry directly addresses those challenges.

Faster clinical trials — for faster cures

We are building a large pool of potential participants in clinical trials. The brain tests and questionnaires can help identify those that might benefit from potential diagnostic tools or therapies. This pre-screened applicant pool can take years off trials!

Better clinical trials — for faster cures

If clinical trials enroll participants from our Registry, the scientific team may be able to see changes in brain functioning that occurred before the trial began. This longitudinal data makes for better research – and that gets us closer to cures.

More innovation — for faster cures

When trials are faster, better and less expensive, investigators can test more theories and try new therapeutic approaches. The prospects for breakthrough innovation increase – and that’s what we need for cures.
