Interested in taking part in research that could help in the fight against Alzheimer’s?

We are looking for individuals, aged 60-75 years, who have not been diagnosed with any memory impairment, but have a specific form of a gene that may increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

If you are unable to answer ‘Yes’ to all of the eligibility questions above, unfortunately you will not be able to participate in the Generation Program. Thank you for your interest. If you’re still interested in helping to beat Alzheimer’s, you can register with Join Dementia Research.

The people behind the Generation Program.

The Generation Program is a collaboration between a group of leading research organisations. Many of the people involved have been touched in some way by Alzheimer’s.
