About ADDI

The Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative (ADDI), a 501(c)(3) medical research organization (MRO), is dedicated to advancing scientific breakthroughs in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias through open data and global collaborations.

We cannot rid the world of its darkest diseases if our brightest minds are working alone.

To encourage global collaborations, make data more accessible, and accelerate progress on curing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, 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 and other researchers in order to educate the entire research community on promising areas of focus; enhance or fill gaps in data sets, including enabling the generation of demographically representative data sets.

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.
