The purpose of this NINDS-led Alzheimer's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) initiative is to 1) develop tools, standards, and an Open-source software platform that enables a federated (multiple data repository sites with a single access portal) approach for data sharing and analysis of human digital neuropathological slides and 2) perform software testing to validate and verify that the software and tools developed can be used to perform multisite neuropathological analyses using a federated approach. The federated approach requires a single access point of digital slides from multiple geographically distinct brain banks. The resources developed are expected to also enable cross-site annotation and computational image analysis, including advanced analytic approaches. A critical feature of this FOA includes the broad sharing of neuropathological data to further advance research in this area, including the development of a digital resource for distribution and sharing of assessed neuropathological tissue. Software and tools developed under this initiative are expected to be shared using Open Science principles, and the federated digital library is expected to follow FAIR data sharing principles.
