Alzheimer's Disease Initiative Dinner Retreat

TDH is hosting a dinner retreat on Monday, January 27, from 5:30-7:30 pm to update the community on the Alzheimer's Disease Initiative.  RSVP is required by January 22. 

Problem

  • The need to forestall brain disease processes before symptoms appear and boost repair of disrupted circuits after onset of symptoms. 

Solution

  • Understand the basic biology of the brain to identify early biomarkers.
  • Discover interventions that forestall underlying diseases prior to the onset of symptoms.
  • Deploy new approaches to repair brain circuits once symptoms appear.

Impact

  • Develop new, effective methods for early detection.
  • Create new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
  • Harness the brain’s own resilience and repair abilities.
  • Develop breakthrough therapies for a range of conditions.
  • Refine the understanding of disease mechanisms for further preclinical and basic research.
