Major International Collaborative Initiatives in Alzheimer Disease

International Collaborations

Large-scale genetic studies involving thousands of individuals are ongoing at the HIHG, with many funded by the National Institute of Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These studies have been successful in identifying a number of new genes that could eventually translate into clinical care. HIHG researchers play leadership roles in each of these large genetic international initiatives.

  • Collaboration on Alzheimer Disease Research- Focused on analyses of data generated by the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project – a national collaboration with data representing tens of thousands of individuals. Click here to learn more: CADRE
