About the Conference

Leading tau experts will convene for the Tau2024 Global Conference to collaborate and discuss key issues impacting the tau research community. This in-person and online conference provides a forum for members of academia, industry, philanthropy and government to:

  • Discuss tau-based biology, biomarkers, therapeutics and phenotypes.
  • Attract talent and funding to the study of tauopathies, particularly among early career researchers.
  • Increase interdisciplinary alignment and collaboration around challenges in tau research.

Topics will include biomarkers, clinical manifestations, drug development, risk and environmental factors, genetics, molecular and cell biology, neuropathology, and more.
