Alzheimer’s Symposium and Researchers’ Awards

The Alzheimer’s Association and Johnson and Johnson Innovation want to solve the global crisis of Alzheimer’s disease that affects individuals and their families living with the illness. The prevention of Alzheimer’s disease is a bold aspiration yet we believe it is achievable. Their guiding principle is that we can create more value working together with the best talent and nurture the translation of new ideas.

To understand and help move forward solutions, they are bringing together top academic researchers from Gladstone Institutes, UCSF, UC Berkeley, and Stanford University along with leading industry professionals to discuss their research and key developments in the Alzheimer’s field. The 1.5-day agenda offers stimulating panels with inspiring speakers, prime networking opportunities, the Alzheimer’s Innovation Award finalist, and the young scientist award announcements.
