GAP Citizen Scientist Awards® Overview
GAP established GAP-Net, a growing network of nearly 100 leading private and academic clinical trial sites that are involved in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's research. All GAP-Net sites can nominate up to three Citizen Scientists® in each of the four award categories, for a total of up to 12 nominees per GAP-Net site. Each site will celebrate these nominees at their local site and regional events. A final awardee will be selected in each award category for elevated recognition.
Each nominated individual will be presented with a certificate for being named a Citizen Scientist® nominee. The four that have been selected for elevated recognition will receive an award and will be recognized at an event to honor their participation and commitment to continuing research within their communities.
