Abstract: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, without an
effective treatment. Animal models of AD have been valuable tools to
understand familial or early onset AD, but to date have not been predictive for
translational research. The objective of the Model Organism Development
and Evaluation for Late-onset AD (MODEL-AD) Center is to develop, validate,
and distribute novel mouse models of late-onset AD (LOAD) that can be used
to develop novel therapeutics. We have established pipelines to test current
fAD models across three sites and characterize mice using biochemistry,
histology, functional assays and in vivo MRI and PET imaging, to determine a
standard testing paradigm across all sites. MODEL-AD is a consortium
involving Indiana University, The Jackson Laboratory, University of California-
Irvine and Sage Bionetworks.
