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:||Ying Yan|
|Institution:||University of Waterloo|
|Department:||Statistics and Actuarial Science|
|Proposed Analysis:||I am requesting the ADNI for my PHD thesis: Joint analysis of event history data with longitudinal measurements. Joint modelling is a popular area since the early 1990's, but there are many open problems remained unexplored. Furthermore, researchers were mainly focusing on applying joint modeling techniques for AIDS studies, where CD4 counts and viral loads are the popular biomarkers. I heard about ANDI when a professor visited our department, and I am quite interested in it. We are developing new statistical methods for some unexplored problems, and I am sure the ADNI data will give us new motivations and insights. We will submit our research papers to the major statistical journals.|
