Search DIAN Data Resource 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-D1004), the full request has been submitted and is either approved, disapproved or in process.

Title:Organoid-based lncRNA discovery platform for Alzheimer's Disease.

Date of Request:11/14/2023



Aim 1:Generate assembloid cultures (assembled organoids) from familial and sporadic Alzheimer's Disease induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines, as well as their Crispr-Cas9 generated isogenic controls.

Aim 2:Extract cell-type specific long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) repertoires by using a combination of lineage purification, deep RNA sequencing and ATAC sequencing.

Aim 3:Annotate novel lncRNA and identify transcripts that are dysregulated in patient vs control cells.

Aim 4Use bulk and single-cell transcriptomes from the DIAN cohorts to validate newly identified lncRNA that may be associated with the disease.

Title:Examining the Predictive Value of Synaptic Dysfunction and Neuronal Injury Measures on Imaging Markers of Disease Presentation and Progression in Alzheimer's Disease

Date of Request:09/26/2023



Aim 1:Evaluate association between rates of longitudinal change in CSF levels of Ng, SNAP-25, VILIP-1 and imaging brain changes and cognition in a DIAD cohort.

Aim 2:Evaluate association between rates of longitudinal change in CSF levels of Ng, SNAP-25, VILIP-1 and imaging brain changes and cognition in aged adults LOAD cohort.

Title:Evaluating neural correlates of apathy in Alzheimer’s disease

Date of Request:09/18/2023

Status:pending approval


Aim 1:Aim1. We will seek to determine if apathy is embedded in a larger network of NPS and functional and cognitive impairment using clustering analysis. In the subset of data with neuropathology information, we will identify the association between apathy clusters and neuropathology.

Aim 2:Aim2. We will examine brain morphometry, structural connectivity, metabolism, amyloid PET in reward-sensitive areas, and effort valuation processing areas in apathy and/or its networks.

Aim 3:Aim3. We will evaluate the association between the intrinsic time scale (fMRI) and apathy and apathy networks in the course of disease.


Title:Prediction of Alzheimer's Disease through multimodal approach by machine learning

Date of Request:09/07/2023

Status:pending approval


Aim 1:Develop a multimodal machine learning model to accurately predict Alzheimer's disease progression using a combination of imaging, genetic, and clinical data.

Aim 2:Investigate the potential biomarkers and features from various modalities that contribute significantly to the early detection and progression tracking of Alzheimer's disease.

Aim 3:Evaluate the model's performance in predicting Alzheimer's risk and progression in a diverse patient population, including individuals with different genetic backgrounds and demographics.

Aim 4Explore the interpretability of the multimodal model to gain insights into the underlying mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease, aiding in the development of targeted interventions.
