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:||George Cabral|
|Institution:||Federal University of Pernambuco|
|Department:||Center of Informatics|
|Proposed Analysis:||My name is George Cabral and I am currently a PhD candidate at the UFPE, located at the Pernambuco province in Brazil. My research area is Computational Intelligence and I am currently developing new methods for novelty detection based on one-class classification. Our aim is to detect unknown objects using only normal data to designe the discriminant model. I am applying to ADNI data by the relevance of the problem (to detect Alzheimer from cases where the disease was not diagnosed). Thus, basically, our method will attempt to detect Alzheimer cases (or any other anomaly) knowing only what is healthy people. Best Regards.|
