Emerging Concepts in Basic Science

This series highlighting basic dementia science will be a can’t-miss aspect of AAIC 2019.



In 2016, the AAIC Scientific Program Committee introduced the Emerging Concepts series, an innovative aspect of the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® program designed specifically for basic dementia science.

One Emerging Concepts session will be held each day from Sunday to Tuesday of the conference, concluding with a panel discussion on Wednesday that includes the three session leads.

Tuesday, July 16 | [EC-03] Emerging Concepts in Basic Science Series: Is There a Causative Role for Infectious Organisms in Alzheimer’s Disease?
