Informatics Core

The Informatics Core (IC), based at the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at USC, is responsible for de-identifying, archiving, and disseminating all clinical, biospecimen, genetic and imaging data including raw and processed MR and PET scans. All data are made available to approved ADNI investigators within days after the date of collection through the Image and Data Archive (IDA) website which provides search and data exploration interfaces for evaluating and obtaining data of interest. The IC also distributes methods and software tools created and/or used by the ADNI analysts.
