The IADRC Neuroimaging Core of the Indiana Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center serves as a regional and national resource for the aging and neurodegeneration research community—spanning academia, health care and pharmaceutical industry. The core provides access to and collaborative support for the application of advanced neuroimaging in clinical and translational research.
The IADRC Neuroimaging Core is developing and implementing advanced imaging protocols and imaging-genetics analysis techniques, collaborating with NIA-funded initiatives, including Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC), Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer’s Network (DIAN), the Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS).
- Support funded research in the IADRC, IU Center for Aging Research, and related programs that could benefit from advanced neuroimaging
- Provide standardized, state-of-the-art neuroimaging and analysis protocols
- Expand transdisciplinary regional neuroscience research using advanced neuroimaging tools to study disease mechanisms and treatments for neurodegeneration
- Support and collaborate with major national and international AD-related research consortia using neuroimaging and genetics methods
- Provide educational opportunities for scientists at all levels from undergraduates to post-doctoral fellows and faculty, as well as dissemination to the community
