Ginkgo Evaluation of Memory Study

Michelle Carlson, PhD, Principal Investigator

This nationwide study is a multi-center, randomized and controlled clinical trial to evaluate whether medicine made from the plant Ginkgo biloba can prevent or delay dementia.

The study has enrolled over 3,000 adults ages 75 and older with no dementia and in good health at baseline, and is in the fifth year of a ten-year evaluation. The Center on Aging and Health is one of  four participating centers.
