Miami, South Florida has an vast resident geriatric population. The staff of CPMI has maintained within our database, a extensive population of Geriatric subjects for a number of years. The size of this population averages between 70 to 100 subjects. The age range starts at 65 years to 85+ years of age. Obviously the higher the age, the more difficult it is to recruit subjects so we try to maintain contact with the older subjects. Dr. Lasseter has successfully been the Principal Investigator of 38 Geriatric research studies.
