Mobile Research Suite to Take Clinical Trials on the Road

The Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute has developed a mobile Memory Research Suite to bring clinical drug trials in Alzheimer’s disease to senior communities throughout Florida. The 400-square-foot research space will be staffed by clinical experts from the Institute who will evaluate study participants and administer investigational medications at pre-selected study sites.
