NG00067 - Alzheimer's Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP)

Overview

Background
Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP) is sequencing and analyzing the genomes of a large number of well characterized individuals in order to identify a broad range of AD risk and protective gene variants. The ultimate goal is to facilitate the identification of new pathways for therapeutic approaches and prevention

Goals
The overarching goals of the ADSP are to:
(1) identify new genomic variants contributing to increased risk of developing Late-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease
(2) identify new genomic variants contributing to protection against developing Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)
(3) provide insight as to why individuals with known risk factor variants escape from developing AD
(4) examine these factors in multi-ethnic populations as applicable in order to identify new pathways for disease prevention.
