Clinicians and biomedical researchers are facing an enormous challenge of the continuously increasing amount of information available. The scientific community is generating new information of diseases in accelerating speed and different measurement technologies produce huge amounts of data from patients. Objective, systematic and usable tools for managing all this available information are desperately needed.
This work package develops models for beating this challenge by integrating measurements from biological, clinical and environmental domains. The models have as primary focus to support research into understanding the normal ageing brain and patterns in neurodegenerative disease, and early and differential diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease.
