The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal is a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical data cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.

The PREVENT-AD (Pre-symptomatic Evaluation of Experimental or Novel Treatments for Alzheimer's Disease) cohort is composed of cognitively healthy participants over 55 years old, at risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease (AD) as their parents and/or siblings were/are affected by the disease. These ‘at-risk’ participants have been followed for a naturalistic study of the presymptomatic phase of AD since 2011 using multimodal measurements of various disease indicators. One clinical trial intended to test a pharmaco-preventive agent has also been conducted.
The PREVENT-AD dataset is available to researchers around the world with the intention to contribute to the community’s growing understanding of AD pathogenesis.
