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:||John Baker|
|Institution:||State University of New York at Buffalo|

|Proposed Analysis:||We propose to develop regression models using neuroimaging, neuropsychology, and other clinical and demographic variables as independent variables. Dependent variables would include functional assessment and diagnostic or pathologic variables. Other analytic techniques would include cluster analysis and item response theory models. We are interested in investigating subtypes of cognitive impairment, especially in terms of cognitive and functional decline. We are especially interested in cerebral small vessel disease contributions to mixed Alzheimer's and vascular cognitive impairment.|
