Conference Program


Advancing the Science: The Latest in Alzheimer’s and Dementia Research

Presented by Maria C. Carrillo, Ph.D, Chief Science Officer, Medical and Scientific Relations, Alzheimer’s Association

As chief science officer, Maria Carrillo sets the strategic vision for the Alzheimer’s Association global research program. Under her leadership, the Association is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research — investing more than $440 million since 1982 — and an internationally recognized pioneer in convening the dementia science community. Dr. Carrillo uses her platform as a noted public speaker to play an instrumental role in the Association’s efforts to lobby for increased funding for the disease.

Dr. Carrillo oversees the implementation of the Association’s growing portfolio of research initiatives, including the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® (AAIC®), the world’s largest and most influential dementia science meeting, and the Research Roundtable, which enables international scientific, industry and government leaders to work together to overcome shared obstacles in Alzheimer’s science and drug development. In addition, she leads the Association’s direct involvement in research by serving as a co-primary investigator for the Association-funded and led U.S. POINTER study, a lifestyle intervention trial to prevent cognitive decline and dementia.

A respected expert in the dementia science field, Dr. Carrillo has been featured in media outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine and “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.”

Dr. Carrillo earned her Ph.D. from Northwestern University’s Institute for Neuroscience and completed a postdoctoral fellowship focused on Alzheimer’s brain imaging and risk factors at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
