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:||Li-San Wang|
|Institution:||University of Pennsylvania|
|Department:||Pathology and Laboratory Medicine|
|Proposed Analysis:||The proposed analysis is part of the Alzheimer's Disease Genetic Consortium, headed by Dr. Gerard Schellenberg, University of Pennsylvania. We ask for access for the ADNI phenotype and genetic data; we will perform genome-wide association analysis (including SNP, haplotype, and CNV genotypes) and compare significant loci with SNPs/genes known to be associated with Alzheimer's disease (and other neurodegenerative diseases), as well as findings from analysis of additional samples that will be genotyped by the consortium.|
