Name EPND
Long Name European Platform for Neurodegenerative Diseases
Description The European Platform for Neurodegenerative Diseases (EPND) integrates existing initiatives to build, grow, and deliver a scalable and self-sustainable platform for storage and analysis of high-quality clinical samples and data collections. It is a public-private partnership funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), aiming to become a future European infrastructure, facilitating access to biological samples and data to accelerate biomarker discovery and validation and eventually support the development of therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases.
Objectives 1. Create a set of agreed ethical, legal, regulatory, business and sustainability principles to establish governance and operational processes to enable sharing and access to data and samples; 2. Establish a network that provides central and federated access to high quality samples and data from over 60 cohorts by combining existing data discovery and sharing initiatives made interoperable as part of the AD Workbench. In addition to enabling the sharing and access of data and samples, the platform will provide central and federated capabilities to ensure unified interpretation of biomarker data.; 3. Provide visibility into the quality and standardization of the data and samples available in the platform from existing cohorts. Similarly, for prospective cohorts the development of SOPs will guarantee the quality of samples and data available, which will be important when focusing on the regulatory approval path for biomarkers; 4. Perform a robust evaluation of the developing EPND platform through the execution of case studies on the Amyloid-Tau-Neurodegeneration (ATN) staging, complement activation, microbiome markers and molecular subtypes; 5. Embrace sustainability from the start of the project by designing and piloting exploitation strategies such that the platform is self-sustainable by the end of the project.
