Advance the conversation around Alzheimer’s precision medicine and open science

Join us for this year’s NIA-AA Symposium: Enabling Precision Medicine for Alzheimer’s Disease Through Open Science, a no-cost virtual conference on dementia research and precision medicine, supported by the Alzheimer’s Association and the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

This virtual symposium will feature an array of NIA-supported translational dementia research programs that employ precision medicine principles and open-science practices to:

  1. Understand the complex and heterogeneous etiology of Alzheimer’s.
  2. Identify new disease-relevant targets and biomarkers.
  3. Develop the next generation animal models for late onset AD.
  4. Advance novel targets into drug discovery by developing target enabling research tools.
