Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Implementing a Physical and Cognitive Performance Assessment Cohort in the MURDOCK Study Community Registry and Biorepository [ Time Frame: Upto 2 years or 24 months ]
    Factors associated with physical function and physical activity and change in physical activity and function over two-year follow-up.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Serum and plasma samples collected from MURDOCK Study enrollment visit and two year follow up Physical Performance visit.

Estimated Enrollment: 1000
Study Start Date: May 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:
The MURDOCK Study, proposes this Horizon 2 study to collect a brief physical and cognitive performance assessment from 1,000 MURDOCK Registry participants. Blood sample aliquots will also be obtained. These physical and cognitive performance data, paired with -omics data from plasma and serum sample analyses, offer promise in the discovery of biomarkers for functional decline. This research will provide an important basis for our understanding of the physical, lifestyle, and genetic factors which, over the lifespan, contribute to changes in physical and cognitive capabilities as we age.
