The Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute is home of the WRAP study, one of the world’s largest and longest-running studies of individuals at risk for Alzheimer’s disease.
WRAP consists of nearly 2,000 individuals, followed over time, to learn about biological, health and lifestyle factors that may affect the disease. Many participants have been enrolled in WRAP since 2001. WRAP is more than 20 years old! In 2021, WRAP celebrated its 20th anniversary.
WRAP is also a comprehensive data set, a registry of volunteers available to help other researchers, and part of the Initiative to End Alzheimer’s Disease.
