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.

|Proposed Analysis:||Early detection of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is important for optimizing the benefits of drug treatment of the disease. Recently, biomarkers have been developed to detect early changes in “preclinical” AD. While these techniques have emerged as promising tools for pre-symptomatic diagnosis, these methods are either invasive, expensive, or both. I propose to explore the potential of behavioral tasks as practical, inexpensive early diagnostic tools for AD by correlating cognitive measures and biomarker data from the ADNI database.|
