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: Jocelyn Argueta
Institution: University of Southern California
Department: Laboratory of Neuro Imaging
Proposed Analysis: I am a gradate student in USC's Neuroscience Graduate Program, working in Dr. Judy Pa's lab in the department Laboratory of Neuro Imaging. I will be using the ADNI dataset to conduct different genetic analyses to investigate single nucleotide polymorphisms within women-specific risk genes that may be associated with the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Currently, I am interested in BRCA1, but will expand my research scope using the data in ADNI.
Additional Investigators  
Investigator's Name: Judy Pa
Proposed Analysis: Dr. Judy Pa is my P.I. She has access to the ADNI dataset. I am a new graduate student in her lab that also needs access to the ADNI database. We will be using the database to correlate women-specific genetic risks to cognitive impairment and onset of Alzheimer's Disease. We are particularly interested in BRCA1's role in cognitive impairment, but we would like to expand our research scope to include other risk genes.
