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:||Kelvin Liang|
|Institution:||Washington University in St. Louis|
|Proposed Analysis:||A crucial component in the development of new treatments is the ability to gauge how an intervention has impacted disease pathology, and a better understanding of how the neuroanatomical and molecular changes in Alzheimer's disease (AD) are connected would contribute towards such an instrument. For this reason, I would like to investigate the correlations between anatomical regions of interest (ROI) for AD and its cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers. I am also interested in how lifestyle and genetic factors could modulate a person's clinical and pathologic profile. Thank you for considering my application; I am a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis.|
