Our database brings together funded research supported by public and private organizations both in the US and abroad all categorized using the Common Alzheimer's and Related Dementias Research Ontology or CADRO.
Launched in 2010 as a joint collaboration between the National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer’s Association, the International Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Research Portfolio (IADRP) collates and categorizes the portfolios of major organizations for areas of shared priorities as well as areas of opportunities to inform coordination and collective efforts that seek to advance AD/ADRD research.
Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (AD/ADRD) are recognized as a public health crises worldwide. As public and private funding agencies around the world enhance and expand their support of AD/ADRD research, there is an urgent need to coordinate funding strategies and leverage resources in order to maximize the impact on public health, avoid duplication of effort and reduce inefficiency. Such coordination requires a comprehensive assessment of the current landscape of AD/ADRD research in the US and internationally.
IADRP Participating Organizations and Agencies
IADRP represents a diverse group of 40+ public and private organizations from around the world in more than 10 countries.
CADRO is a three-tiered classification system developed by the National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer's Association to organize and compare basic, translational and clinical AD/ADRD research projects across multiple funding organizations using common terminology.
Data Submission Process
Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias research projects and resources are coded using CADRO by uploading data to the IADRP Coding Portal (two-step coding and validation)
Coded projects and resources are then uploaded to the public database
Available projects and resources can be filtered, summarized and analyzed based on CADRO and other related project information
