The final EPAD dataset is now available to the entire research community

The European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia (EPAD) project is very pleased to announce the external release of its final dataset for all researchers from over the world. The final dataset is called Version.IMI (V.IMI) as it represents all the data collected and processed during the IMI period of EPAD.

A key achievement of the EPAD project was the establishment of a Longitudinal Cohort Study (LCS) that has screened a total of 2,096 participants, collecting a wide range of cognitive, clinical, neuroimaging and biomarker data to help further our understanding of the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.  The LCS was initiated and the first participant screened in May 2016. Screening into the LCS was stopped on 29 February 2020. The 2096 participants who consented and were entered into the eCRF during the IMI-period of funding are included in the V.IMI data release.

EPAD has made this database open access and publicly available to the research community. To access the data, you will need to make an online request via EPAD LCS Research Access Process.
