Newsletter Global Alzheimer's Association Interactive Network
Every year, scientists start new studies on Alzheimer’s disease by collecting neuroimaging and clinical data. Often the data is used once for a particular study, then it can be difficult to find again for further use.
The Global Alzheimer’s Association Interactive Network (GAAIN), funded by the Alzheimer’s Association and powered by the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at USC, strives to ensure this data is findable and sharable for further use by the scientific community. We support Data Partners in their data sharing requirements and data requesters in their queries, cohort discovery and exploration of data. GAAIN has developed the first and largest operational online integrated research platform, which links scientists, shared data, and sophisticated analysis tools.
We share a common goal: to understand the causes and advance the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. By using GAAIN, you can easily access and integrate data in a safe, secure manner to address questions of unprecedented complexity. By becoming a GAAIN Data Partner, you are uniting with scientists around the globe to build upon each other’s work. Whether you have data to share, or data sets you want to find, we want to collaborate with you for the benefit of all.
Join the GAAIN webinar taking place on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at 1 PM (US Eastern) to learn more about how to share data with GAAIN, a live demonstration of the GAAIN Interrogator data exploration tool, and hear from a guest speaker on an example of GAAIN usage.
The GAAIN Cohort Scout lets you search through thousands of data attributes collected by GAAIN Data Partners and allows you to build, save, and share cohorts.
The GAAIN Interrogator lets you visualize relationships between attributes in user-defined, cross-study cohorts.
