The U.S. Alzheimer’s Association is now accepting letters of intent (LOI) for a new programme called GAAIN Exploration to Evaluate Novel Alzheimer’s Queries (GEENA-Q).
The Global Alzheimer’s Association Interactive Network (GAAIN) is a big data platform for cohort discovery and data exploration focused on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. GAAIN provides tools that allow researchers to explore diverse clinical, health factor, genetic, and imaging datasets from data partners around the world. It currently has nearly 500,000 unique clinical records from nearly 30 clinical studies.
GEENA-Q will stimulate researchers to interrogate the federated GAAIN network for new discoveries in Alzheimer’s research. Applications are encouraged from research laboratories and teams around the world.
LOI must be received by 5:00 PM ET, on April 4, 2018.
