AgeLab conducts an extensive agenda of original research that requires subjects, some paid, some volunteer, to participate in experiments, provide their opinion, participate in surveys and other studies. The Lab has established a successful network to recruit subjects to meet the needs of individual laboratory and infield studies. Collaboration with local hospitals and physicians enable screening and recruitment of adults with specific health conditions or medications. Work with area agencies on aging, senior centers, aging services providers, faith-based organizations, and housing communities enable recruitment of a diverse range of older adult subjects. Use of print and electronic media may also be used depending on the research. All AgeLab researchers have received human subjects training and MIT’s Committee on the Use of Human Experimental Subjects approves all our protocols.
