Project Details


The Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute acts as the Clinical Coordinating Center
and the Clinical Core for the ADNI project. In this capacity, the ATRI provides
administrative and operational support through its Cores at USC. The Administrative Core
provides the overall administration of the Coordinating Center. The main areas of
responsibility of the Administrative Core are the recruitment and retention of subjects,
establishment and maintenance of subcontracts with the sites, tracking visit activities and
providing payments for the subcontracts, human subject’s regulatory compliance and consent
form development, planning and coordination of the training and steering committee meetings,
and supporting communications. The Medical Core is responsible for the clinical site monitors
and interaction with the Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), and processing clinical
and adverse event data. The Clinical Operations Core is responsible for developing, updating
and distributing study documents (protocols, training and procedures manuals), coordinating
and organizing the clinical trial activities at the sites, tracking enrollment and assigning open
enrollment slots, managing and distributing study supplies, acting as the primary point of
contact for the sites, and coordinating clinical operations activities. The Informatics Core,
working closely with Clinical Operations, is responsible for developing and maintaining the
data collection system as well as providing data management support, including the
generation and maintenance of electronic case report forms, development and implementation
of quality control procedures, data collection and study tracking.
