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:||Christine Fennema-Notestine|
|Department:||Psychiatry and Radiology|
|Country:||United States of America|
|Proposed Analysis:||Using methods developed in collaboration with the Morphometry Biomedical Informatics Research Network (mBIRN), we will use publicly available raw data from the ADNI study to improve image processing techniques and workflows for efficiently handling large numbers of datasets from this elderly population. We will apply these techniques to investigate clinical hypotheses related to differentiating control, MCI, and AD groups and predicting future conversion based on combinations of morphometric, metabolic, neuropsychological, and other available biomarkers. Investigations will include studies of regional volume, cortical thickness, and shape analysis in collaboration with Johns Hopkins co-investigators.|
