Emerging Concepts in Basic Science
This series highlighting basic dementia science will be a can’t-miss aspect of AAIC 2019.
In 2016, the AAIC Scientific Program Committee introduced the Emerging Concepts series, an innovative aspect of the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference® program designed specifically for basic dementia science.
One Emerging Concepts session will be held each day from Sunday to Tuesday of the conference, concluding with a panel discussion on Wednesday that includes the three session leads.
Sunday, July 14 | DNA Damage and Other Mechanisms
Monday, July 15 | Session to Be Announced
Tuesday, July 16 | Debate on the Infectious Agent Hypothesis in Alzheimer’s Disease
Wednesday, July 17 | Panel Discussion
Karl Herrup, Stacie Weninger and others will each summarize the Emerging Concepts in Basic Science sessions that took place on Sunday through Tuesday. Audience questions and panelist discussion in response to these questions is the main format of this session.
