ADNI data is made available to researchers around the world. As such, there are many active research projects accessing and applying the shared ADNI data. To further encourage Alzheimer’s disease research collaboration, and to help prevent duplicate efforts, the list below shows the specific research focus of the active ADNI investigations. This information is requested annually as a requirement for data access.
|Principal Investigator's Name:||Peter Hardy|
|Institution:||University of Kentucky|
|Country:||United States of America|
|Proposed Analysis:||Use the proton density and T2 weighted images generated from the TSE sequence to calculate T2. Use voxel based morphometry to analyse AD,MCI and Normal subjects to search for brain regions with abnormally low T2 indicating higher concentrations of iron. Hypothesis is that folks with AD will have higher iron concentration and lower T2 in regions of pathology.|
