Scientific Objectives

  • To find efficient biomarkers from heterogeneous patient data and integrate them for making early diagnosis and progress monitoring of AD more efficient, reliable and objective.
  • To improve the cost-effectiveness of AD diagnostics by optimising diagnostic protocols.

Technical Objectives

  • To develop an efficient and reliable software solution that a physician can use to assess the risk, to diagnose and to monitor the progress of AD in real clinical conditions using heterogeneous data.

  • To develop a strictly evidence-based statistical framework, via precise modeling of heterogeneous data, which allows objective AD diagnostics.

  • To develop data quantification methods for AD meeting various critical clinical requirements, including accuracy and computation time.
