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: João Paulo Andrade Devezas

Department: Faculdade de Engenharia
Proposed Analysis: I would like to use artificial intelligence algorithms to investigate their ability to detect early microstructural changes that further lead do Alzheimer onset using dMRI images provided by your database. For this I will be using Convolutional Neural Networks and python programming language frameworks like Caffe and/or TensorFlow to try to make this work. The ultimate goal would be to help the early diagnosis of this disease to help relieve the aggravation of symptoms and possibly help decrease the global burden of the disease.
