Iron as an Imaging Biomarker for Inflammation in Alzheimer’s Disease

The purpose of this study is to learn how iron is potentially involved in Alzheimer’s disease. We are enrolling individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment, and healthy volunteers. Participants will be asked to complete a 7T MRI and a PET-MRI at Stanford. Participants will be compensated $200 for each scan.

MRI and Circulating Cytokines Profiles as Biomarkers for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

This study aims to learn about the mechanism of fatigue, and develop a biomarker specific to CFS, which will improve the ability to diagnose CFS. We are enrolling ME/CFS patients and healthy volunteers between the ages of 18-60. Participants will be asked to come to Stanford for two study visits, which include a blood draw, a brain MRI scan, and some questionnaires. Participants will be compensated $150 for their participation.
