Open Science
At the Memory and Aging Center, we look for opportunities to collaborate and share resources.

Academic, not-for-profit investigators can request subjects, tissue and laboratory specimens, archived and imaging data, technological tools or video clips of behaviors for professional education and research for research studies from the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, but you must have Institutional Review Board approval from the UCSF Human Research Protection Program (HRPP).

Time Limitation

Unless approved for a longer period of time, all requests are active for a maximum of 18 months or until the number of approved subjects has been provided, whichever comes first. If more time is needed to complete your project, please submit a new resource request.

Submit Request

Use the online UCSF MAC Resource Request Form to submit your application. All MAC resource requests must include a completed UCSF MAC Data Use Agreement and be approved by the UCSF MAC Resource Request Executive Committee, which meets monthly to review all requests.

The UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) also maintains resources for investigators collaborating with UCSF.
