Rare Sharing of Data Leads to Progress on Alzheimer’s

The key to a collaborative Alzheimer’s project was an ambitious  
agreement to share all the data, making every single finding public  
immediately.

“We weren’t sure, frankly, how it would work out having data available  
to everyone, but we felt that the good that could come out of it was  
overwhelming. And that’s what’s happened.”  Dr. Neil Buckholtz, Chief  
of the Dementias of Aging Branch at the National Institute of Aging,  
in the National Institutes of Health.
