How it works
To join Great Minds you need to be over 18 years old and have participated in a previous health study (sometimes called a cohort, population or medical study). If your health study invites you to join Great Minds this is because you can help speed up the development of treatments for dementia.
Becoming a Great Minds member is easy and secure. We take you through a few online questions and brain health tasks which take about 20 minutes. You don’t have to complete these all in one sitting, once you are a member you can come back at any time to complete the tasks.
Our exceptional members help to innovate research and fast-track the development of treatments for dementia.
Our members' health study data holds valuable information about changes in brain health which helps researchers target studies and trials.
