This event will focus on research concerning early detection and diagnosis and provide important information for the general community. The speaker will be followed by a presentation of complimentary caregiver resources. Hot appetizers and a cash bar will be available.

Dr. Morris is the principal investigator for four multicomponent research grants, awarded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), to study various aspects of Alzheimer’s disease. These grants include the Knight Alzheimer Disease Research Center, which Dr. Morris directs, two program projects, “Healthy Aging and Senile Dementia” and “Antecedent Biomarkers for AD: The Adult Children Study”; and a cooperative agreement that establishes an international consortium of leading academic centers, “The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network” (DIAN). Dr. Morris directs all of these programs with the overarching goal of identifying Alzheimer disease in its earliest stages, prior to the onset of any symptoms, so that therapies can be initiated to prevent the occurrence of Alzheimer’s dementia.
