Search DIAN Tissue Requests

In order to avoid the situation where two investigators study the same research question, please search our database to determine if your topic has already been studied. If you find that your topic or a related topic has already been submitted, you may wish to contact the investigator to inquire about his/her findings to determine how you might proceed. You may wish to collaborate or modify your request to avoid overlap. The results below reflect requests made since online requests have been accepted. As such, not all fields will have data as certain information, such as aims, were not collected until recently. If an entry has been assigned an ID # (e.g. DIAN-T1004), the full request has been submitted and is either approved, disapproved or in process.

Title:

In-depth characterization of iPSC-derived neuronal models carrying familial dementia mutations

Date of Request:

9/30/2016

ID:

DIAN-T1611

Aim 1:

Generation and development of human neuronal models with dementia-related dysfunctions

Aim 2:

To explore molecular mechanism of neuronal malfunctions by FAD-linked mutations

Investigator:

MPIs: Tom Montine and Mike MacCoss

Title:

Molecular Phenotyping in Alzheimer's Disease

Date of Request:

10/21/2016

ID:

DIAN-T1612

Aim 1:

We will collect proteomics data on post-mortem brain samples using a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) strategy called data independent acquisition.

Aim 2:

Leverage high-dimensional proteomics data to identify and understand the molecular signatures of three groups that will enable precision medicine for AD: (i) different genetic risk, (ii) common co-morbidities, and (iii) resilience to AD neuropathologic change.

Aim 3:

We will make our data available through a novel cloud based solution, called the Chorus Project (http://chorusproject.org), engineered to enable big data reanalysis by the community of scientists.

Investigator:

Jacques P. Tremblay
