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:||Christoph M. Friedrich|
|Institution:||University of Applied Science and Arts Dortmund|
|Proposed Analysis:||i want to do further analysis of the ADNI data and unfortunately my old access from my former position at Fraunhofer Institute is no longer working. Therefore i reapply for access to the ADNI dataset to do further research on selection of representative subsets of SNPs with metaheuristic methods. The main idea is using metaheuristics from publications and using phenotypic data. I plan to additionally let one or two of my students, that plan to do their master thesis in "medical informatics" to work with the data and i will add them to the collaboraters list if they agree. Former successful work with the ADNI data that has been published and approved by the ADNI committee: G. Üstünkar, S. Özögür-Akyüz, G. W. Weber, C. M. Friedrich und Y. A. Son, „Selection of Representative SNP Sets for Genome-Wide Association Studies: A Metaheuristic Approach“, DOI:10.1007/s11590-011-0419-7, Optimization Letters, Volume 6(6), Seite 1207-1218, 2012. and can be accessed at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11590-011-0419-7 with best regards Christoph M. Friedrich|
|Investigator's Name:||Kira Matthes|
|Proposed Analysis:||Kira Matthes ist a student of mine and works in her masters thesis project on a knowledge based system to guide the diagnosis process of Alzheimers disease. She will test the performance of her system on the ADNI dataset. When being successful a publication on the new system is planned.|
