Welcome to AMYPAD!

We were a collaborative research initiative aiming to improve the understanding, diagnosis and management of Alzheimer’s disease through the utilisation of ß-amyloid PET imaging. AMYPAD was funded from October 2016 until September 2022.

The Amyloid imaging to prevent Alzheimer’s disease (AMYPAD) initiative aimed to:

"We would hope that the direct results of the project are useful about our thinking of when amyloid deposition starts and when it's clinically relevant. But what is even more important is that the consortium that we formed, started collaborating on things that go well beyond the initial goals of AMYPAD. And actually, we should further integrate AMYPAD, EPAD and all the European cohorts that are now collaborating and joining forces in analysis of PET/MRI scans, imaging, biomarker but also genetic data. It is something of great value and will contribute to the future of all samples, definitely in Europe and hopefully also globally. ” Frederik Barkhof
