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.

|Proposed Analysis:||In the last year, I've been involved in the analysis of biomedical data by means of a novel data mining technique, which involves the representation and processing of data through Complex Networks. This has allowed us to obtain very interesting results, spanning from the analysis of genetic data, up to MagnetoEncephaloGraphic (MEG) data. As an example, you can look at the following paper: http://www.nature.com/srep/2012/120905/srep00630/full/srep00630.html My proposal involves the use of such complex network analysis with your data; the aim, of course, would be to identify novel elements capable of describing the appearance of the Alzheimer's disease.|
