New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease

New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease
Keep me postedAdd to calendar

Alzheimer’s Disease research is accelerating with exciting new insights into molecular and cellular mechanisms. This upcoming conference brings together some of the thought leaders in the field with young investigators to stimulate discussion and interaction.

We anticipate further insights into the triangle amyloid, Tau and neuroinflammation and how these might provide novel therapeutic approaches.

The following topics will be the focus of this conference:

  • Genes and environment
  • Synapse and circuitry
  • Mechanisms and models of disease
  • Seeds and spreading of disease

Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during the breaks, poster sessions and the conference dinner.

This conference is supported by:

Stichting Alzheimer Onderzoek

Information for poster submissions

The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation. The best ten abstracts will be given a short talk slot in the plenary program. No registration is needed before submitting a abstract. The deadline for abstracts is 27 August 2021. All accepted poster submissions will have a chance to win the NHAD21 Poster Prize.
