The AD Detect and Prevent consortium was present at the Brain Conference “Understanding and targeting Alzheimer's disease” that was held on 5-8 May 2019 in Rungstedgaard, Denmark. This conference, organized by the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), brought together leading brain researchers and scientists in order to, amongst other issues, exchange views on challenges connected to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) as well as how to address knowledge gaps in the field of AD research. Various presentations on the latest clinical trials and the requirement of biomarkers for early risk assessment were held during the meeting.
On this occasion, Ulrik Ditlev Eriksen, co-founder of Brain+, delivered a presentation on how the EU-funded AD Detect and Prevent project aims to enhance the early detection of AD and address risk factors connected to Alzheimer’s Dementia. AD Detect and Prevent also took part in the Poster Session that was held on 6 May.
