Research Conference:Targeting Alzheimer's Disease
Targeting Alzheimer's Disease
Research Conference - Philadelphia, PA
The Targeting Alzheimer's Disease conference provides an opportunity to learn new methods, network with experts in Alzheimer’s disease research and have access to the latest technology in translational research, imaging, biomarker development, and target validation.
The central quest of research on Alzheimer’s disease is to identify precisely what process first interferes with episodic declarative memory and then prevent that process. Soluble Aß oligomers isolated directly from AD cortex impair synaptic form and function and induce tau hyperphosphorylation and neuritic dystrophy. Based on this knowledge, attempts to develop effective A-lowering agents have brought us to human trials that have provided preliminary evidence of apparent cognitive and biomarker benefit.
