ADRD Specific Milestone

Neuropathologic characterization of LBD and use of LBD pathology cohorts.


Success Criteria

  • Evaluate existing LBD post-mortem clinical data and tissue resources, as well as existing best practices in neuropathologic evaluation, for their impact and effectiveness in advancing the field.

  • Based on this evaluation, determine the best course of action to enhance the acquisition and distribution of post-mortem LBD tissue, including central and peripheral tissue, and corresponding clinical data.

  • Develop best practices for patient outreach and education to emphasize the importance of brain donation, as well as the means for providing logistical support and resources to facilitate brain donations.
