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:||Arthur Mikhno|
|Department:||Molecular Imaging and Neuropathology|
|Proposed Analysis:||We devised a method to derive regions of interest from C11 PIB data that can be used to automate discrimination between different healthy volunteers and Alzheimer's patients using a subjects C11 PIB scan and their MRI. We want to evaluate our method on a larger size and variety of subjects including AD-like controls, MCI amnestic and non-amnestic and AD patients of varying severity and age.|
|Investigator's Name:||Ramin Parsey|
|Proposed Analysis:||To supervise and guide researchers to develop automated methods for classifying, establishing risk and severity of Alzheimer's dementia using C11 PIB scans. We will use ADNI data to evaluate and improve our current methodology. We will also compare PIB data we acquire to ADNI PIB data to establish whether our methodology can be used in a multi-center, multi-scanner environment.|
