By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

September 28, 2021 -- Konica Minolta subsidiary Invicro plans to collaborate with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) to create a brain imaging and genomics database to help clinicians better identify dementia risk factors.

The company will partner with the NIH's research initiative, the Center for Alzheimer's and Related Dementias (CARD), through a data science contract with Data Tecnica International, according to the firm.

Invicro hopes the partnership will "provide clinicians with a better understanding of how the underlying genetic makeup and a patient's medical history could impact the prediction, treatment, and prevention of neurodegenerative disease that could be used for precision medicine approaches," it said in a statement.
