You’re invited: Lecture on Alzheimer’s Disease research

October 15, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center invites all faculty and staff to the next talk in the monthly Dementia Lecture Series.

The discussion, entitled “What Advancements in Blood Biomarker Research Could Mean for the Future of Alzheimer’s Disease,” will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. until noon via Zoom.

It will involve a panel discussion on research presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference this past July, which shows promising results for a blood test that may detect Alzheimer’s before symptoms appear.

To share what this could mean for the future of Alzheimer’s disease testing, Henry Paulson, M.D., Ph.D., MADC director, and Nicholas Kanaan, Ph.D., associate professor of translational neuroscience at Michigan State University will come together to answer some key questions. The program will be facilitated by Scott Roberts, Ph.D., associate professor of health behavior and health education at the U-M School of Public Health.

Registration is required here
