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: MUSTAFA TALHA AVCU
Institution: Bilkent Universtiy
Department: Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Proposed Analysis: I'm an undergrad student in the University of Bilkent and I am taking EEE-485 Statistical Learning and Data Analytics course which includes a machine learning project in its syllabus. You can find more information in the following link( So, we've decided to study on Alzheimer and implement different ML methods such as Discriminative Dictionary Learning(DDL) and Convolutional Neural Networks(CNN). Thank you in advance for sharing this precious data to the ones who want to use with education and research purpose.
Additional Investigators  
Investigator's Name: Taylan Kargın
Proposed Analysis: I'm taking the same course with Mustafa which is EEE 485 Statistical Learning and Data Analytics and we're going to make a project together. Project'll include different ML methods like CNN and DDL in order to compare and choose the best working on the MR and PET images.
