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:||Angela Wang|
|Institution:||University of Utah|
|Department:||Center for Alzheimer's Care, Imaging and Research|
|Country:||United States of America|
|Proposed Analysis:||I am working for Dr. Norman Foster at the University of Utah in identifying the biological changes associated with Alzheimer's disease. Comparison of the changes in the brain that occur with normal aging, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and with Alzheimer's disease (AD) will aid in the detection and early diagnosis of memory decline. An atlas composed of MRI and PET images of patients that are diagnosed normal, MCI and AD will provide a standard for research on the progression of AD.|
