National Institute on Aging Intramural Research Screening
“Screening Protocol to Evaluate Volunteers for NIA Approved Studies”
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) Intramural Research Program (IRP) has a number ofiRB approved research studies involving human subjects, both normal volunteers and patients. As a means of identifying interested volunteers and other participants in the research process, this screening mechanism is established to identif'y potential eligible participants for NlA protocols. To participate, volunteers/patients must meet the specific requirements of at least one of the available NlA research studies; this protocol serves as a first step for admitting volunteers/patients to an appropriate approved protocol and creating a contact database for approved NlA studies. This protocol will facilitate their recruitment into NIA approved studies and provide NlA staff the opportunity to examine subjects where diagnostic observations can be documented and evaluated for research potential.
