Preconferences
Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium (AIC) Preconference

Saturday, July 13
8 a.m. - 5:45 p.m.

This preconference will focus on the clinical application and methodological development of neuroimaging (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT and others) to Alzheimer's disease, other dementias and normal brain aging.


Technology and Dementia

Saturday, July 13
9 a.m. - 4:55 p.m.

This preconference brings together researchers in the technological field working to improve the standard of living for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Admission to the Technology and Dementia preconference is not included with the AAIC Full Conference fee.


The fluid biomarkers field for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias is rapidly expanding. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an in-depth understanding of the fundamental principles, inherent limitations and clinical and research applications of the most common biomarkers used in AD and found in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood. This workshop will include the fundamentals of CSF physiology, basics of neurochemistry, technical issues of sample collection, storage, analysis methods, quality control and regulatory issues. It will also cover the latest in cutting-edge biomarker technology, including blood-based biomarkers with the current understanding of how biomarkers track the progression in AD and their use in other dementias.


This workshop will provide practical information and an enhanced understanding of the fast-growing fields of amyloid and tau imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron imaging tomography (PET). Lectures will be followed by interactive sessions to ensure that participants gain an in-depth appreciation of some of the commonly used interpretive clinical and or research applications for each methodology.


This workshop will discuss contemporary issues in clinical trials, which aid clinicians in selecting cost-effective trial designs. Topics include simulation concept and trial enrichment, Bayesian thinking and adaptive trial designs and multiple comparisons and related topics. Instructors from both industry and academia will present. For each topic, lectures will start with an overview of basic concepts, followed by more advanced topics, using practical examples. Each year, examples using new data by different instructors are provided so that repeat attendees have the opportunity to gain new knowledge.


This interactive workshop is intended to provide the participant with an understanding of the basic neuropathological features of age-associated neurodegenerative diseases. This will include neuropathological hallmark lesions that are seen in Alzheimer’s disease, primary tauopathies, α- synucleinopathies, diseases displaying inclusions with transactive DNA binding protein and various vascular lesions. Numerous scanned histological slides will be assessed to provide information on how the observed lesions are interpreted (i.e. identify certain lesion, assess its extent and state its clinical relevance). A number of cases will be presented and discussed, including their clinical phenotype, the neuropathological observations, classification applied and the interpretation leading to a final diagnosis. The participant should gain a solid and lasting knowledge of the basics covered (i.e. various neuropathological lesions listed in a sign-out report and the classifications applied).


The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has taken special efforts to support research endeavors that explore health disparities related to aging. The NIA Health Disparities Research Framework is used to assess progress and opportunities toward stimulating multi-level aging research, at environmental, sociocultural, behavioral and biological levels of analysis. The goal of this educational workshop is to examine disparities in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) with special emphasis on study design and methodological considerations when linking multi-level factors to AD disparities. The presentations will focus on Alzheimer biomarkers evaluation and the use of various life course perspectives.


Academic scientists have an important and growing role in the translation of novel targets into potential therapeutics, a vital step in the quest to develop effective therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease. This workshop will address key challenges academic scientists face when attempting to commercialize their science: from identifying when science is ready for translation to overcoming key challenges involved in becoming an entrepreneur starting a new company (NewCo). Some scientists don’t want to become entrepreneurs per se but still need to understand how to de-risk an idea to attract external investment as well as the different paths to commercialization. Considerations for licensing to an existing company versus building a NewCo will be discussed.
