NIH Award Expands Study of Alzheimer’s Biomarkers



The Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) — the long-running National Institutes of Health-supported study investigating brain and fluid biomarkers of the disease — enters a new phase of discovery with the launch of ADNI3. With the recent NIH award of approximately $40 million over the next five years—coupled with anticipated private sector contributions of $20 million through the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) — ADNI3 will use cutting-edge technologies in brain imaging as it recruits hundreds of new volunteers. Expansion of the groundbreaking study, now in its 12th year, will further develop ways to speed clinical trials by providing researchers the biomarkers needed to detect the onset and track the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
