Program Outline

Day 1: Biomarker Discovery and Assay Development
Currently, there are many biomarkers for diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. However most of them do not provide consistent results.  This session will discuss current research aimed at obtaining reliable biomarkers which could be used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease at very early stage and also to provide objective and reliable measures of disease progress.

Day 2:  Prevention Strategies and Vaccine Development 
This session will discuss current research into Alzheimer’s Disease prevention including vaccine development. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and debate.

Day 3:  Drug Discovery and Development
There are currently no treatments that will stop or reverse the progress of Alzheimer’s disease. With an aging population and increasing number of people with Alzheimer’s, the need to develop ways to halt and treat the disease have become paramount.  This session will discuss current research into Alzheimer’s drug discovery and development including analysis of current clinical trials
