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: Steven Armentrout
Institution: Parabon Computation
Department: Bioinformatics Division
Country:
Proposed Analysis: In conjunction with Dr. Jason Moore of Dartmouth, Parabon is adapting the MDR algorithm for execution on large-scale cloud computing infrastructure under an NIH STTR project. It is our hope to analyze the ADNI data using MDR in this environment for epistatic relationships.
Additional Investigators  
Investigator's Name: Ellen McRae
Proposed Analysis: High-order gene interaction analysis of ADNI genotype data against various phenotypes.
