Please join leading neuroscientists, physicians, and other experts to discuss research on Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias at the National Institutes of Health campus on May 1-2. The meeting will help set research priorities for these serious brain disorders.

Organized by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in collaboration with the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the workshop, Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Dementias: Research Challenges and Opportunities, will solicit input and develop recommendations for research for Alzheimer’s-related dementias, including:

  • frontotemporal disorders
  • Lewy body dementia
  • vascular dementia
  • mixed dementia, a combination of two or more types of dementia

The workshop is convened under the 2012 National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease and complements NIA’s May 2012 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit 2012: Path to Treatment and Prevention.

The workshop will be held at Natcher Auditorium, NIH Campus, Bethesda, MD. To learn more about the conference and to register online, visit www.ninds.nih.gov/ADRelatedDementias2013.
