Dementia and poor brain health starts decades before symptoms show. The challenge to early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of dementia is the lack of research volunteers with historical health data.
Great Minds recruits health studies volunteers who are interested in taking part in targeted dementia studies and trials.
Fast-Tracking dementia trials
Our members have all participated in previous health studies, agree to take regular memory and mood tests and join clinical trials. The health information they provide helps researchers map changes in the brain that may be the origin of poor brain health. Understanding the origin of these changes will accelerate the development of new treatments.
Precision matching people to trials
Our members' health information is held securely as part of Dementias Platform UK (DPUK) – the richest single source of data optimised for dementia research. Using this rich data source, researchers can quickly identify the right volunteers for the right trials.
Setting preferences: volunteers choice
Our members set preferences for which type of trial they wish to support and which assessments they are willing to take, so we only contact them about trials they feel passionate about.
