Ongoing Investigations

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  
Principal Investigator's Name: Marie Altendahl
Institution: University of California, San Francisco
Department: Neurology
Proposed Analysis: The Social Function Lab, led by Dr. Katherine Rankin, is investigating neuroanatomic changes that can cause altered personality and social behavior. Access to the ADNI database will aid our research as we develop tests of social and emotional cognition that will allow an earlier, more accurate diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases.
