Tucson, AZ — The Critical Path Institute's (C-Path) Coalition Against Major Diseases (CAMD) is announcing it will integrate its Alzheimer's clinical trial data into the Global Alzheimer’s Association Interactive Network (GAAIN) data portal.

GAAIN is an open-access, big data resource that provides scientists with rapid access to Alzheimer's research data. Data made available through GAAIN are contributed by the world's foremost Alzheimer's researchers. It includes information on more than 320,000 research participants from 21 data partners. The GAAIN portal is hosted by the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.

"While we have a greater understanding now about the biological underpinnings that lead to dementia, there are still key questions that need to be answered in our search for treatments to stop or slow the progression of the disease," said Maria Carrillo, PhD, Alzheimer's Association Chief Science Officer. "Since it opened as a resource tool for the research community early last year, GAAIN has worked to link scientists with information and tools needed to advance research into the root causes of Alzheimer's and other dementia-causing diseases. The usable research data made available by CAMD through GAAIN will undoubtedly help the scientific community more efficiently tackle these diseases. We sincerely thank CAMD and its members for their contribution to and support of this critical data-sharing network." Continue>
