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:||Mario Esposito|
|Institution:||Università di Genova|
|Proposed Analysis:||In the paper "Local MRI analysis approach in the diagnosis of early and prodromal Alzheimer's disease. Chincarini et al" we proposed an evolution of a previous technique ("Automatic analysis of medial temporal lobe atrophy from structural MRIs for the early assessment of Alzheimer disease. Calvini et al"), by analyzing other pathology-specific volumes of interest where a high discrepancy is found Between MCI converters and non-converters. Now we want to extend our analysis, based on MRI only, to other modality involving the entire brain.|
