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 can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s. This website is intended for residents of Canada. If you are based outside of Canada, please choose your country at the top of the page.Read more Volunteer
The Generation Program is made up of two clinical trials: Generation Study 1 and Generation Study 2. Each trial will last for 5 – 8 years and will be investigating treatment that may be able to prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll have many study sites across Canada - find the one closest to you.
To test our investigational treatment, we’re asking people like you to help. We’re not looking for people with Alzheimer’s, but rather those with a specific form of a gene that can increase the risk of developing the disease.
Not everyone will have this. That’s why we’ll need to get you to take a quick cheek swab test before you can be enrolled, just to see if you’re eligible for the trial.
Only with your help will the trial have the chance to succeed.Read more Volunteer

If you’re eligible for the Generation Program and choose to take part, you could be one of the few that can join the fight to prevent Alzheimer’s. You will need to attend regular visits to your local study site throughout the study.
