New Participants

Participation in the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention provides the most comprehensive information for our researchers through engagement in our full list of study components. As always, your participation is voluntary and greatly appreciated!

A full study visit including cognitive testing and biomarkers occurs across two or more days, which may be consecutive, with follow-up visits every 2 years. Each visit can include:

  • Questionnaires and Interviews
  • Cognitive Testing
  • Vital Sign Measurement
  • Blood Draw
  • Physical Examination with Clinician
  • Lumbar Puncture (LP)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) – through the WRAP/ADRC PET Study

Please note: Currently, WRAP recruitment is open to individuals of minority backgrounds and certain blood relatives of current WRAP participants. However, many other Alzheimer’s disease studies at UW-Madison are recruiting new participants. Click here for more information.

For more information about MRI, LP, and PET, please Contact WRAP. Currently, these procedures are open to all WRAP and AA-FAiM participants but only available at our Madison location. MRIs will be an option in Milwaukee in the near future!
