Older Adult Research Registry

Join the Older Adult Research Registry

The Older Adult Research Registry is a database managed by the Center for Gerontology to connect researchers with adults of at least 50 years of age who are willing to take part in research studies. By enrolling in the registry, you are indicating your interest in participating in studies conducted by Virginia Tech.

Opportunities may come available to participate in studies that focus on individual health, computer use and technology, family relationships and caregiving, community services, housing, and transportation. Selection for each study will be based on information you provide at registration. If you are selected, it will be your decision as to whether you participate.

You do not need to be a resident of the New River Valley to enroll in the registry.

All adults aged 50 or older are invited to enroll!
