This study focuses on couples ages 40 and older. In addition to a 1-hour screening appointment, the study includes two 7-hour study visits scheduled about 2 years apart. Each partner may be reimbursed up to $535 for your joint participation (for a total of $1070 per couple) over the course of the study.


We are currently conducting the studies pictured above. Click on the study you're interested in to read more information.
