Professional Research Registry

Miro Health Research Studies:

Miro Health is currently conducting research to improve our understanding of the ability of interactive mobile activities to monitor brain function. This research may help physicians and scientists reliably characterize and monitor motor, language, and cognitive changes in neurologic and psychiatric disorders. This research may also help us gain a better understanding of what is happening to the brain over time, and it may contribute to the development of early detection methods.

Share Your Caregiver Story Alzheimer's Clinical Trial opportunities - Preventive and medications for mild to severe

Miami Dade Medical Research Institute is currently doing Clinical Trials for people that suffer from Alzheimer's Disease. Clinical Trials offer the opportunity for new treatments and medications with the sole purpose of creating a healthier future. Our programs are for people from 60 to 85 years of age with early to mild AD diagnosis, as well as healthy people from 60 to 75 years with a family history of AD, that are interested in preventing the disease from developing.

Analysis of Language and Speech in Patients with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD)

Winterlight Labs, a technology company, and Alector, a biopharmaceutical company based in San Francisco, are partnering to conduct a speech assessment study in persons diagnosed with behavioral variant FTD (bvFTD) or primary progressive aphasia (PPA). The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether an in-home speech assessment that uses an iPad application can detect changes in how the brain processes information in FTD. By analyzing how you speak, Winterlight Labs and Alector may be able to detect changes in brain information processing that cannot be detected with other tests.

Developing and Validating a New Caregiver Experience Scale

This survey will help scientists better understand the experience of being an informal caregiver.  Informal caregivers are family members or friends who provide unpaid care and play an important role supporting the lives of those experiencing illness.  Informal caregivers may help with eating, dressing and bathing, provide emotional support, keep financial accounts, and may also help with home medical treatments, arrange and attend patient appointments, and coordinate patient care among multiple providers.
