Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging

Welcome to LORIS!

LORIS (Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System) is a web-based data and project management software for neuroimaging research studies. It features a secure and open-source framework for storing and processing behavioural, clinical, neuroimaging, and genetic data. LORIS also makes it easy to manage large datasets acquired over time in a longitudinal study, or at different locations in a large multi-site study, such as the signature clinical study for Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA), COMPASS-ND.

By the end of 2019, COMPASS-ND aims to enroll 1650 Canadians (aged 50-90yrs) who are living with, or are at risk for developing, dementia in 30 sites across Canada. As it becomes available, data collected from cohort participants (as well as other CCNA projects) is securely stored within the LORIS Data Portal. This is also where CCNA scientists can communicate their intentions about how the data will be used, both within and across research teams.
