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:||Gagan Sidhu|
|Institution:||University of Alberta|
|Proposed Analysis:||I have found a generalized fMRI reconstruction algorithm that has shown to unveil neurological biomarkers on 5 publicly available datasets containing 3 separate neuropsychiatric disorders (adhd, autism, and schizophrenia) from the ADHD200, ABIDE, COBRE data sharing initiatives, and the Mind Research Network dataset containing a working memory task. I am trying to expand the breadth of the uncovered biomarkers from my algorithm, as i plan to submit to nature or the lancet. As such, the alzheimers data is incredibly useful for unveiling biomarkers that will likely be different from previous findings, given that this method consistently finds biomarkers using the *same* approach on *any* dataset. access to the ADNI data would be incredibly helpful for making the article a Nature-worthy publication, as i fear the current set of disorders is insufficient to convince/interest a general audience.|
