Conferences

Our Conferences are the best opportunity to enter the ever-expanding world of clinical medicine and fundamental science. Imagine great speakers discussing novel ideas and experience the amazement that comes with every discovery!

Some of our conferences will be Keynote Lectures – special talks held by our most prominent guests.

 

You are welcome to attend any Conference and Keynote Lecture without prior booking!

 

All conferences will take place on Saturday and will be divided into 2 groups: the morning group and the afternoon group. Please keep in mind that in order to receive your Certificate of Participation, you must attend at least two events (this includes Conferences, Keynote Lectures and Presentations), one in the morning group and one in the afternoon group. In other words, on Saturday, you can go to any Conference, Keynote Lecture or Presentation session you prefer, as long as one is in the morning and the other one in the afternoon.

Future therapeutic targets in Alzheimer’s Disease

Research on neurodegenerative diseases is an escalating field with an extremely active focus on therapeutic management.  The more recently discovered drugs do not make it on the market, but current research is escalating quickly. The Neurogeriatrics laboratory at the Karolinska Insitute, under the guidance of Professor Dr. Bengt Winblad focuses on discovering possible therapeutic treatment options for AD. As a lead researcher, Dr Winblad will come and offer his insights on where their work might lead in the near future.
