Overview

The Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium (AIC), a preconference to the Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC), will focus on the clinical application and methodological development of neuroimaging (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT and others) to Alzheimer's disease, other dementias and normal brain aging. The program consists of invited speakers, as well as oral and poster presentations from submitted abstracts.

AIC is organized by the Neuroimaging Professional Interest Area of the International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART).

AIC registration fellowships (The application process is closed.)

A limited number of fellowships, in the form of complimentary AIC registration, are available for early career scientists who are the presenting author on an accepted abstract.
