ADDI’s medical-research activities include: developing a data sharing platform and associated data science tools that will provide researchers with access to data regarding dementia-related diseases; connecting to data around the globe and securing permissioned access for researchers within the AD and related dementias field; using the platform and tools to conduct medical research and bringing the research community closer to detecting, treating and curing dementia-related diseases; and publishing the results of ADDI’s research, as well as those of other researchers, in order to educate the entire research community on promising areas of focus. ADDI will also aim to enhance or fill gaps in data sets, including enabling generation of demographically representative datasets.
ADDI initiatives will:
Increase interoperability of existing data platforms globally.
Increase sharing of dementia-related data from academic and industry sources.
Empower scientists to find, search, combine, and analyze data that could lead to new discoveries in dementia research.
