Our growing team needs your clinical trial management skills, working on a platform study with our partners in Australia, Europe, Asia, South America, and the North America. Please read more about the cutting-edge research you can be a part of at the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network Trials Unit (DIAN-TU) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, ranked #11 in research funding by U.S. News & World Reportâ™s Best Medical Schools list (2022 ).
Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Disease (DIAD) is a rare form of Alzheimerâ™s disease that causes memory loss and dementia in people typically in their 30s to 50s. The disease affects less than 1% of the total population. In families that carry dominant mutations for Alzheimerâ™s, doctors can predict who will develop the disease and at approximately what age. This allows researchers to look for brain changes â“ long before symptoms appear â“ in people who carry such mutations, compared with their relatives who donâ™t. At the DIAN-TU, we serve as the trial sponsor and we are evaluating promising drugs to treat DIAD. Through the DIAN-TU in 2012, our researchers initiated the worldâ™s first Alzheimerâ™s disease prevention trial in DIAD families.
