NGI at the AAIC

The Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC 2021) is underway virtually as well as in-person in Denver, Colorado. The hybrid conference started Monday and continues through Friday July 30. Sessions at the meeting focus on clinical treatment and research of Alzheimer disease including biomarkers, disease prevention and treatment, social determinants, and genetics of the disease. This year, there has also been a substantial effort to study the interactions between COVID-19 and Alzheimer disease.

Researchers from the NGI are presenting nearly a dozen abstracts and posters this week to disseminate their hard work. Here is the full list of NGI presenters and their presentation titles:

Yun Ju Sung: Multi-tissue proteomic profiling for genetically defined Alzheimer disease cases. 

Muhammad Ali: Using Amyloid PET as a biomarker to detect progression of early Alzheimer’s disease. Poster #53006
