Dr. Michael Weiner, chief investigator for the new Brain Health Registry at U.C. San Francisco Medical Center, says they hope to recruit a broad cross section of the American population, and quickly expand to include international participants.

For Alzheimer’s researcher Dan Mungas at UC Davis, the registry offers an unprecedented opportunity to find the most valuable research subjects for future studies in his specialty.
