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:||JING ZHANG|
|Institution:||Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington School of Medicine|
|Proposed Analysis:||In our lab, we have identified a few novel CSF markers that might be useful for monitoring AD severity/progression correlation. We want to validate our findings in ADNI samples collected cross-sectionally as well as longitudinally. We wish to request the biomarker samples of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) collected by the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative. Now, we wish to apply for the data about the actual number of cross-sectional and longitudinal CSF samples of AD, MCI and healthy controls in the current database of ADNI CSF samples we can apply for.|
