We are actively enrolling individuals ages 100 and older (centenarians), as well as their siblings, children, nieces and nephews, who can help researchers identify the secrets to healthy longevity. Family members are eligible, even if the centenarian does not participate.
A major goal of this research study is to find genetic and biological components that allow some individuals and families to live exceptionally long and healthy lives. Remarkably, studies show that individuals with longevity do not only live long, but also delay or escape age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and stroke.
We enroll participants from across the United States (except Alaska and Hawaii), as well as southern Canada.
All study information is collected remotely, either by phone or video, with the exception of the blood and stool samples.
There are no costs to you, and you do not need to travel anywhere to be in the study.
