VPH-DARE@IT aims to deliver the first, integrative and validated multiscale modelling platform for biomedical research and clinical decision support, underpinned by a set of unique databases and modeling paradigms, which will tackle the early and differential diagnosis of dementias using a combination of mechanistic and phenomenological models of the ageing brain, accounting for its environmental context.
 The aim of the HATICE project is prevention of dementia and cardiovascular disease in the elderly.  With this grant a new easily accessible internet platform for elderly will be developed, with readily available nurse-support. 
Biocenter Kuopio:
...aims at building up a multidisciplinary research network between different actors in the fields of molecular medicine and related drug research and biotechnology. 
...is to find new molecular mechanisms underlying the common brain diseases, and thus identify novel targets to be used for intervention strategies.
...is also striving to identify novel biomarkers for predicting the risk and progression of the brain diseases as well as responses for medical treatments. 
Cardiovascular risk factors, aging and dementia. 
Joint collaboration between Department of Neurology (University of Eastern Finland), the National Institute of Health and Welfare (Helsinki, Finland) and Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden). 
Finnish geriatric intervention study to prevent cognitive decline.
The International Genomics of Alzheimer's Project (IGAP)
...to completely understand the role inheritance plays in Alzheimer's disease. To achieve this goal, IGAP will work to identify all the genes that contribute to the risk of developing this disease.
Therapeutic and preventive impact of nutritional lipids on neuronal and cognitive performance in aging, Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. 
... project aims at the development of a diagnostic tool able to detect in blood as early as possible, and at a cost compatible with large scale screening, emerging neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's Disease), and thus aid in the selection of the best treatment.

... research project aiming at developing a standardised and objective solution that would enable an earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, improved monitoring of treatment efficacy and enhanced cost-effectiveness of diagnostic protocols.
