The Alzheimer’s disease (AD) research field produces a dizzying amount of publications each year. For graduate students and postdocs who enter this field, the learning curve can require many months of independent study just to learn the basics.
Recognizing the need to accelerate this process, the Internationale Stichting Alzheimer Onderzoek (ISAO), the Alzheimer Forschung Initiative (AFI), the Ligue Européenne Contre la Maladie d’Alzheimer (LECMA) and the BrightFocus Foundation (BrightFocus) are pleased to announce the 4th edition of our three-day educational workshop, “Alzheimer Research from different perspectives.” This “boot camp” approach is organized in collaboration with our scientific partners at the European Graduate School of Neuroscience (EURON). The goal of the workshop is offer graduate students and postdocs an immersive opportunity to learn and discuss some of the latest trends in Alzheimer’s disease research. The workshop is designed to allow the participants to discuss and receive feedback related to their own research project via discussions, interactive workshops and scientific debates. Workshop sessions are taught by leaders in the field, and emphasize interaction with students and immediate application of new knowledge through exercises such as debate and mock grant proposals.
The topics of the workshops are: I. Cellular and Pathological Events, II. Molecular and Epigenetic Pathways, III. Modeling Alzheimer’s Disease, IV. Treatment Strategies. This workshop with its venue, the Bahia Resort Hotel, provides a unique and close learning experience, allowing participants to establish vital career networks with faculty, foundation representatives, and other students and postdocs. The meeting attracts approximately 40 participants from all over the world, and most of them take advantage of the subsequent SfN meeting to test their enriched view of Alzheimer’s disease.
