The Knight ADRC has supported many investigators at Washington University and at other institutions over the years. We wish to avoid the situation where two investigators study the same research question to avoid duplication of effort and potential conflict. To determine if your topic has already been studied with our resources, please search our database. If you find that your topic or a related topic has been submitted, you may wish to contact the investigator to inquire about their findings to determine how you might proceed. You may wish to collaborate or modify your request to avoid overlap. The results below reflect requests made since online requests have been accepted. As such, not all fields will have data as certain information, such as aims, were not collected until recently. If an entry has been assigned an ID number (e.g. T1004), the full request has been submitted and is either approved, disapproved or in process. If an entry has no ID number, then it represents a submission that has not yet been reviewed. Search terms are applied across an entire requests application including variables not displayed below. A more specific, detailed search may yield better results depending upon your needs.

Project Title: Allzheimer Disease Neuroimaging Initiative 3 (ADNI3)
Date: July 26, 2016
Request ID: S1606
Aim 1: To discover, optimize, standardize, and validate clinical trial measures and biomarkers used in AD research
Aim 2: To capture rates of decline on cognitive, global and functional tests and the rate of conversion to MCI or dementia due to AD.
Aim 3: Determine the longitudinal extent and rate of amyloid and tau deposition in PET Scans and longitudinal change of cerebral tau correlated and compared with other changes in cognition and biomarkers
Aim 4: Determine which clinical, cognitive and biomarker and imaging capture detection of treatment effects and measure cognitive decline for all groups with a focus on biomarkers and Tau.
