The International Alzheimer's Disease Research Portfolio

Alzheimer's disease is recognized as a public health crisis worldwide. As public and private funding agencies around the world enhance and expand their support of Alzheimer's disease research, there is an urgent need to coordinate funding strategies and leverage resources in order to maximize the impact on public health and avoid duplication of effort and inefficiency. Such coordination requires a comprehensive assessment of the current landscape of Alzheimer's disease research in the US and internationally. To capture and compare their existing investments in AD research and research-related resources, funding organizations need to use a common language and a common classification system. To this end, the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Alzheimer's Association (ALZ) developed the Common Alzheimer's Disease Research Ontology (CADRO). NIA and ALZ hope to expand the use of the CADRO to other federal and non-federal organizations supporting AD research in the US and internationally and their portfolio information to this publicly available International Alzheimer's Disease Research Portfolio. To date, the US federal and non-federal organizations listed below have contributed their AD research portfolios for inclusion in the IADRP. [See IADRP's Data Submission Process]
