- Establish National Exposome Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) Infrastructure (Expo-AD) (Administrative Supplement)
The Expo-AD infrastructure will be the first nationally aligned NIA repository optimized for ADRD disparities-focused exposome intake, linkage, study and sharing via Protected Health Information (PHI)-compliant legal, computing and management infrastructure.
This will enable a synergistic expansion within the parent R01 scope (R01AG070883) and alignment with existing non-PHI NIA core research biorepository and data resources allowing for a maximized investment towards enhanced, efficient impact in the exposome ADRD disparities domain.
Dr. Sheehy is a collaborator on this project.
