David Morgan. Ph.D. is Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director of the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute and Distinguished Professor of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology for the Morsani College of Medicine at the University of South Florida. Dr. Morgan’s research interests are aging and brain function, focusing on drugs to treat Alzheimer’s dementia. Morgan uses mouse models of the changes found in Alzheimer’s disease to better understand the disease process and test new drugs for possible treatment of the disease. He is presently testing immunotherapy (using antibodies) and gene therapy to treat the mouse models. His keynote address will be “Preventing Alzheimer’s by 2020”.
Steven Sabat, Ph.D., is a professor in the department of psychology and has been at Georgetown University since earning his doctorate at the City University of New York, where he specialized in Neuropsychology. The main focus of his research has been the intact cognitive and social abilities (including aspects of selfhood) of people with Alzheimer’s disease in the moderate to severe stages of the disease, the subjective experience of having the disease, and the ways in which communication between those diagnosed and their caregivers may be enhanced. His keynote address will be “Understanding People with Alzheimer’s Disease: Interpersonal Relationships Are Key”.
Matthew Baumgart is the Senior Director of Public Policy for the Alzheimer’s Association. His portfolio includes overseeing state government affairs, the public health project with the Centers for Disease Control, and the Policy Development Department. Prior to joining the Association, Baumgart worked for nearly 18 years in the United States Senate. Most recently, he was the Legislative Director for Senator Barbara Boxer of California and prior to that he worked for over 10 years for then-Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. of Delaware, primarily as Legislative Assistant for social policy issues, including health care. His keynote address will be “The Future of the Alzheimer’s Epidemic in America".
