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's Name: Dipankar Bandyopadhyay

Department: Biostatistics
Proposed Analysis: I would like to develop a Bayesian (spatial) tensor regression model, and apply it to ADNI data. Specifically, I am looking for ADNI DTI (diffusion tensor imaging) data, coming from 2 groups (disease/control) of patients, longitudinal follow-ups, and with measurements at each voxel. Corresponding to each voxel, I would extract the 3x3 DTI tensor matrix, and then model it. Furthermore, dataset should also supply demographics and other important covariates. The proposed analysis will investigate spatial, or graphical association at the tensor level, controlling for covariate effects.
