This call for proposals aims to establish JPND-sponsored expert working groups to enhance the use of existing longitudinal cohort studies for neurodegenerative disease (ND) research.

Priorities and funded actions:

– To establish best practice guidelines and/or methodological frameworks to overcome barriers to Neurodegenerative research in population studies and cohorts

– Assessing the presymptomatic stages of ND, where new methodological approaches, tools and measures are required
– Developing standards to support brain imaging, where guidelines are needed to frame future multimodal imaging approaches and perspectives in molecular imaging
– Measuring cognitive, behavioural and functional changes of relevance to ND progression and outcome, where a consensus on the methodologies to be used is needed
– Data handling, where the emergence of ‘omics’ technologies requires new approaches to data integration and the interrogation and accessibility of big data sets

Among financed actions
– Meetings and travels required to deliver the Working Groups’ objectives
– Workshops
