One of ALZ Germ Quest’s first public appearances after it launched in January was to the National Institute of Health’s (NIH) annual Alzheimer’s Research Summit on March 1st. This is where we first met many thought-leaders in the field of Alzheimer’s research and where several promising relationships first took bud. Unfortunately, due to high winds, the second day of the conference was cancelled and many great presentations including one titled “Building an Open Science Research Ecosystem to Accelerate AD Therapy Development” was never seen.
But thanks to modern technology, NIH will host a LIVE videocast of all the presentations from Day 2 on May 24th.
Guests of the March conference – and researchers who were unable to attend – are encouraged to watch all the presentations from Day 2 by registering HERE.
Additionally, a link to watch presentations from Day 1 is available HERE.
ABOUT THE SUMMIT:
The NIH AD Research Summits are key strategic planning meetings tied to the implementation of the first goal of the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s: to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease by 2025. They bring together a multi-stakeholder community including government, industry, academia, private foundations, and patient advocates to formulate an integrated, translational research agenda that will enable the development of effective therapies (disease modifying and palliative) across the disease continuum for the cognitive as well as neuropsychiatric symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
